To amend chapter 301, RSMo, by adding thereto one new section relating to a special license plate for Missouri Stream Team.

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 301.4016, to read as follows:

            301.4016. 1. Any person may receive license plates as prescribed in this section, for issuance either to passenger motor vehicles subject to the registration fees provided in section 301.055, or for a local or nonlocal property-carrying commercial motor vehicle licensed for a gross weight not in excess of twelve thousand pounds as provided in section 301.057 or 301.058, after an annual payment of an emblem-use authorization fee to Missouri Stream Team. Missouri Stream Team hereby authorizes the use of its official emblem to be affixed on multiyear personalized license plates as provided in this section. Any contribution to Missouri Stream Team derived from this section, except reasonable administrative costs, shall be used solely for the purposes of Missouri Stream Team. Any member of Missouri Stream Team may annually apply for the use of the emblem.

            2. Upon annual application and payment of a twenty-five dollar emblem-use contribution to Missouri Stream Team, Missouri Stream Team shall issue to the vehicle owner, without further charge, an emblem-use authorization statement, which shall be presented by the owner to the department of revenue at the time of registration of a motor vehicle. Upon presentation of the annual statement, payment of a fifteen dollar fee in addition to the registration fees 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 the emblem of Missouri Stream Team. 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.

            3. A vehicle owner, who was previously issued a plate with the Missouri Stream Team 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 Missouri Stream Team 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 under the authority of this section shall become effective unless it has been promulgated under the provisions of chapter 536, RSMo.
