SECTION 1. Chapter 3 of Title 56 of the 1976 Code is amended by adding:
Section 56-3-7750. The department may issue special motor vehicle license plates to organ transplant recipients for private motor vehicles registered in their names. Only one plate may be issued to a person. The biennial fee for the special license plate is the same as the fee provided in Section 56-3-2020, plus an initial fee of two dollars must be charged for issuance of the special license plate.
Section 56-3-7760. The special license plate must be the same size as regular motor vehicle license plates, but must be of a distinctive design and bear the words `Organ Transplant Recipient'.

An organ transplant recipient must submit a doctor's statement verifying his condition with his license plate application."
SECTION 2. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
