Summary of the Introduced Bill

HB 211 -- Motor Vehicle License Plates

Co-Sponsors:  Relford, Ransdall, Davis, Seigfreid

This bill allows military and certain specialty plates to be
obtained for commercial motor vehicles licensed for a gross
weight not in excess of 18,000 pounds (certain pickup trucks),
except apportioned commercial motor vehicles.  Military plates
will not be subject to the fee charged for personalized plates.
All military plates and most speciality plates, except the
Congressional Medal of Honor, Retired Military, and the Prisoner
of War plates, will cost $15 in addition to the regular
registration fee.  There will no longer be a limit on the number
of military plates a person may obtain as long as each set is
issued for vehicles owned solely or jointly by the person.

An advisory committee for the Department of Revenue is
established for the purpose of developing guidelines for the
issuance of motor vehicle specialized license plates.  The
committee must direct the Director of Revenue to implement its
guidelines for all specialized license plates no later than July
1, 2002.

The department is allowed to issue 30-day temporary permits to
applicants for personalized plates.  Currently, regular plates
are issued until the stamped personalized plate is available.

Penalties are provided for any person who makes a false
statement or declaration to the director.

The bill also contains language that will simplify department
procedures, including allowing statements where affidavits are
now required, clarifying the procedure for use of a license
plate issued in the year the vehicle was manufactured, and
making a new plate available designated "Missouri Federation of
Square and Round Dancers."
