Our thought for today is from Isaiah 61:10: "I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my whole being shall exult in my God."

Let us pray. Almighty God, guide these women and men to offer unto You, prayer, praise, and thanksgiving for the great deeds You have given to each. Care for these Representatives and staff as they continue to provide the services necessary for the welfare of this State. Bless our Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, staff, and all who labor in these Halls of Government. Bless and protect our defenders of freedom and first responders as they protect us. Heal the wounds, those seen and those hidden, of our brave warriors who suffer and sacrifice for our freedom. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayers. Amen.

Pursuant to Rule 6.3, the House of Representatives was led in the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America by the SPEAKER.

A request for a contested case hearing for a decision to issue a new license stays all actions for which the license is a prerequisite; from an agency decision granting a license stays the license for thirty days and, if a request for preliminary injunctive relief is filed with the Administrative Law Court, until an order granting or denying preliminary injunctive relief is issued by the Administrative Law Court, at which time the stay is lifted; provided, however, that matters not affected by the request may not be stayed by the filing of the request. If the request is filed for a subsequent license related to issues substantially similar to those considered in a previously licensed matter, the license may not be automatically stayed by the filing of the request. If the requesting party asserts in the request that the issues are not substantially similar to those considered in a previously licensed matter, then the license must be stayed until further order of the Administrative Law Court. A request for a contested case hearing for a decision to renew a license for an ongoing activity stays the renewed license for thirty days, the previous license remaining in effect pending completion of administrative review. A request for a contested case hearing of an order to revoke, enforce, or suspend a license stays the revocation or suspension for thirty days.

A hearing must be held within thirty days after the motion is filed with the court and served upon the parties to lift the automatic stay or for a determination of the applicability of the automatic stay. The judge must issue an order no later than fifteen business days after the hearing is concluded. Any preliminary injunction ordered by the Administrative Law Court may require the posting of a bond or other security sufficient for the cost and expense of the litigation and project delay as demonstrated by an affidavit made on a good faith estimate of the cost and expense. State agencies are exempt from the requirement to post a bond under this section.   /

The license plates, notwithstanding other provisions of this chapter to the contrary, may be used exclusively on motor vehicles owned by, assigned, or loaned for test driving purposes to the dealer when operated on the highways of this State by the dealer, its corporate officers, its employees, a prospective purchaser of the motor vehicle, or a person whose vehicle is being serviced or repaired by the dealer. The use by a prospective purchaser is limited to seven days, and the dealer shall provide the prospective purchaser with a dated demonstration certificate. A dealer license plate may be used by a person whose vehicle is being serviced or repaired by the dealership, provided that the vehicle displaying the license plate is part of a manufacturer program and given to the person by the dealer at no charge to the consumer. The use of a dealer license plate by the consumer for service and repair is limited to thirty days. The demonstration certificate for a prospective customer must be approved by the department. Dealer plates must not be used to operate wreckers or service vehicles in use by the dealer nor to operate vehicles owned by the dealer that are leased or rented by the public.

The sales requirement may be waived by the department if the dealer has been licensed for less than one year.

Multiple transfer of motor vehicles between licensed dealers for the purpose of meeting eligibility requirements for motor vehicle dealer plates is prohibited.

(2)   A dealer may be issued two plates for the first fifteen or less vehicles sold during the preceding year and one additional plate for each fifteen vehicles sold beyond the initial twenty fifteen during the preceding year. A dealer participating in a manufacturer program may be issued two additional plates for each fifteen vehicles sold beyond the initial twenty fifteen during the preceding year. For good cause shown, the department in its discretion may issue extra plates. If the dealer has been licensed less than one year, the department shall issue a number of license plates based on an estimated number of sales for the coming year.
