SS SCS HCS HB 2380, 2016 (Amended Section - Proposed Language)
301.3141. 1. Any parent or sibling who has had a member of his or her immediate family die in the line of duty while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces, after making an annual payment described in subsection 2 of this section to the Veterans of Foreign Wars Department of Missouri and paying all applicable registration fees, may receive special license plates for any motor vehicle the person owns, either solely or jointly, other than an apportioned motor vehicle or a commercial motor vehicle licensed in excess of
twenty-four thousand pounds gross weight. The Veterans of Foreign Wars Department of Missouri, in conjunction with the director of the department of revenue, shall design the special license plate. Any immediate family member of a fallen soldier may apply annually for the use of the emblem.
2. Upon making a twenty-five dollar contribution to the Veterans of Foreign Wars Department of Missouri, the motor vehicle owner may apply for the special license plate described in this section. If the contribution is made directly to the Veterans of Foreign Wars Department of Missouri, the Veterans of Foreign Wars Department of Missouri shall issue the individual making the contribution a receipt, verifying the contribution, that may be used to apply for the special license plate. If the contribution is made directly to the director of revenue, the director shall note the contribution, and the owner then may apply for the special license plate. All contribution fees shall be remitted to the Veterans of Foreign Wars Department of Missouri.
3. Upon presentation of the receipt described in subsection 2 of this section or payment of the twenty-five dollar contribution directly to the department of revenue, payment of a fifteen dollar fee in addition to the regular registration fees, presentation of any documents that may be required by law, and any proof that the applicant's family member died in the line of duty while serving in the United States Armed Forces as the director may require, the director of revenue shall issue to the vehicle owner a special license plate that shall bear the emblem of a five-pointed star and the words "SOME GAVE ALL" in place of the words "SHOW-ME STATE". Such license plates shall be made with fully reflective material with a common color scheme and design of the standard license plate, shall be clearly visible at night, shall have a reflective white background in the area of the plate configuration, and shall be aesthetically attractive, as prescribed by section 301.130. Notwithstanding the provisions of section 301.144, no additional fee shall be charged for the personalization of license plates under this section.
4. A vehicle owner who previously was issued a special license plate authorized by this section, but who does not provide a receipt as described under subsection 2 of this section at a subsequent time of registration, shall be issued a new plate that does not bear the emblem described in this section, as otherwise provided by law. The director of revenue shall make necessary rules and regulations for the enforcement of this section and shall design all necessary forms required by this section. Any rule or portion of a rule, as that term is defined in section 536.010, that is created under the authority delegated in this section shall become effective only if it complies with and is subject to all of the provisions of chapter 536 and, if applicable, section 536.028. This section and chapter 536 are nonseverable and if any of the powers vested with the general assembly pursuant to chapter 536 to review, to delay the effective date, or to disapprove and annul a rule are subsequently held unconstitutional, then the grant of rulemaking authority and any rule proposed or adopted after August 28, 2006, shall be invalid and void.
5. The provisions of section 301.3150 shall not apply to the specialized license plate created under this section.
