HB 1866 -- Missouri Respect Life License Plate

Co-Sponsors:  O'Connor, Ross

This bill allows for a special license plate.  The license plate
will bear the words "RESPECT LIFE" and an image of a single red
rose with a background color scheme to complement and highlight
the words and the image.

To obtain this plate, a person must get an emblem-use
authorization statement, upon the payment of a $25 fee, from the
Missouri Alternatives to Abortion Support Fund, which is
created.  The authorization statement will be presented to the
Department of Revenue at the time of registration.  The fee
charged for personalized plates will not apply to this plate and
there will be no limit on plates issued as long as the vehicles
are owned solely or jointly by a person.

The General Assembly may appropriate moneys annually from the
Missouri Alternatives to Abortion Support Fund to the Department
of Revenue to offset costs incurred for collecting and
transferring contributions.  Until the amount in this fund
exceeds $1,000,000, not more than half of the money credited to
the fund plus all investment earnings credited to the fund
during the previous fiscal year will be available for
disbursement.  When the treasurer certifies that assets in the
fund exceed $1,000,000, from that time on all earnings plus
future credits to the fund from all sources will be available
for disbursement.

The purpose of the fund is to support private agencies which are:

(1)  Established to provide alternatives to abortion services;

(2)  Located in Missouri; and

(3)  Exempt from income taxation.

The General Assembly may appropriate moneys from this fund to:

(1)  The Office of Administration;

(2)  Fifteen administrative departments; and

(3)  Any board, bureau, commission, or other agency of the state
exercising administrative or executive authority.
