To amend chapter 301, RSMo, relating to the registration and licensing of motor vehicles by adding thereto one new section relating to a St. Louis College of Pharmacy special license plate.

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the state of Missouri, as follows:

Section A. Chapter 301, RSMo, is amended by adding thereto one new section, to be known as section 301.3042, to read as follows:

301.3042. 1. Any vehicle owner who has obtained an annual emblem-use authorization statement from the St. Louis College of Pharmacy may, subject to the registration fees provided in section 301.055, apply for St. Louis College of Pharmacy license plates for any motor vehicle such person owns, other than a commercial motor vehicle licensed for a gross weight in excess of twelve thousand pounds. The St. Louis College of Pharmacy hereby authorizes the use of its official emblem to be affixed on multiyear license plates as provided in this section. Any vehicle owner may annually apply for the use of the emblem.

2. Upon annual application and payment of a twenty-five dollar emblem-use contribution to the St. Louis College of Pharmacy, the St. Louis College of Pharmacy shall issue to the vehicle owner, without further charge, an emblem-use authorization statement, which shall be presented by the vehicle owner to the department of revenue at the time of registration of a motor vehicle.

3. Upon presentation of the annual statement and payment of a fifteen-dollar fee in addition to the regular registration fees and presentation of other documents which may be required by law, the department of revenue shall issue a license plate to the vehicle owner, which shall bear the emblem of the St. Louis College of Pharmacy in a form prescribed by the director, shall bear six letters or numbers and shall bear the words "ST. LOUIS COLLEGE OF PHARMACY" 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, shall be clearly visible at night, and shall be aesthetically attractive, as prescribed by section 301.130. A fee for the issuance of personalized license plates pursuant to section 301.144, shall not be required for plates issued pursuant to this section.

4. A vehicle owner, who was previously issued a plate with the St. Louis College of Pharmacy 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 St. Louis College of Pharmacy emblem, as otherwise provided by law.

5. The director of revenue may promulgate rules and regulations for the administration of 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, RSMo.
