To repeal section 301.464, RSMo, and to enact in lieu thereof one new section relating to Korean
War Veterans' license plates.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the state of Missouri, as follows:
Section A. Section 301.464, RSMo, is repealed and one new section enacted in lieu
thereof, to be known as section 301.464, to read as follows:
301.464. Any person who served in the Korean War and was honorably discharged from
such service may apply for special motor vehicle license plates, either solely or jointly, for
issuance for any vehicle the person owns, either solely or jointly, other than an apportioned
motor vehicle or commercial motor vehicle licensed in excess of eighteen thousand pounds. Any
such person shall make application for the special license plates on a form provided by the
director of revenue and furnish such proof of service in the Korean War and status as an
honorably discharged veteran as the director may require. Upon presentation of the proof of
eligibility and [annual] payment of [the fee required for personalized license plates prescribed
by section 301.144, and other fees] a fifteen dollar fee in addition to the regular registration
fees and presentation of the documents which may be required by law, the director shall then
issue license plates bearing letters or numbers or a combination thereof as determined by the
advisory committee established in section 301.129, with the words "KOREAN WAR
VETERAN" in place of the words "SHOW-ME STATE". Notwithstanding the provisions of
section 301.144, no additional fee shall be charged for the personalization of plates issued
pursuant to this section. Such plates shall also bear an image of the Korean War service medal.
The plates shall be clearly visible at night and shall be aesthetically attractive, as prescribed by
section 301.130. No more than one set of special license plates shall be issued pursuant to this
section to a qualified applicant. License plates issued pursuant to this section shall not be
transferable to any other person except that any registered co-owner of the motor vehicle may
operate the motor vehicle for the duration of the year licensed in the event of the death of the
