301.3084. 1. Any person may receive special license plates as prescribed by this section, for any motor vehicle such person owns, either solely or jointly, other than an apportioned motor vehicle or a commercial motor vehicle licensed in excess of eighteen thousand pounds gross weight. Upon making a twenty-five dollar annual contribution to support breast cancer awareness activities conducted by the department of health and senior services, the vehicle owner may apply for a breast cancer awareness license plate. If the contribution is made directly to the state treasurer, the state treasurer shall issue the individual making the contribution a receipt verifying the contribution that may be used to apply for the breast cancer awareness license plate. If the contribution is made directly to the director of revenue, the director shall note the contribution and the owner may then apply for the breast cancer awareness plate. The applicant for such plate must pay a fifteen dollar fee in addition to the regular registration fees and present any other documentation required by law for each set of breast cancer awareness plates issued pursuant to this section. The state treasurer or the director of revenue shall deposit the twenty-five dollar annual contribution in the Missouri public health services fund. Funds in such account shall be used to support breast cancer awareness activities conducted by the department of health and senior services.
2. Upon presentation of the annual statement or a twenty-five dollar annual contribution, as applicable, and payment of a fifteen dollar fee in addition to the registration fee and documents which may be required by law, the department of revenue shall issue to the vehicle owner a personalized license plate which shall bear a graphic design depicting the breast cancer awareness pink ribbon symbol and the words "Breast Cancer Awareness" at the bottom of the plate, in a manner prescribed by the director of revenue. 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 pursuant to this section.
3. A vehicle owner, who was previously issued a plate with a breast cancer awareness emblem authorized by this section but who does not provide an emblem-use authorization statement at a subsequent time of registration, shall be issued a new plate which does not bear the emblem, as otherwise provided by law. The director of revenue shall make necessary rules and regulations for the administration of this section, and shall design all necessary forms required by this section. No rule or portion of a rule promulgated pursuant to the authority of this section shall become effective unless it has been promulgated pursuant to the provisions of chapter 536.
