To whom was referred a Bill (H. 3427) to amend Chapter 3, Title 56, Code of Laws of South Carolina, 1976, relating to motor vehicle registration and licensing by adding Article 87 so as to provide for the issuance of special license plates, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same and recommend that the same do pass:
ADDISON G. WILSON for Committee.
TO AMEND CHAPTER 3, TITLE 56, CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, RELATING TO MOTOR VEHICLE REGISTRATION AND LICENSING BY ADDING ARTICLE 87 SO AS TO PROVIDE FOR THE ISSUANCE OF SPECIAL LICENSE PLATES TO WORLD WAR II VETERANS AND TO PROVIDE FOR THE USE OF A CERTAIN PORTION OF THE FEES COLLECTED FROM THE ISSUANCE OF THIS LICENSE PLATE.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. Chapter 3, Title 56 of the 1976 Code is amended by adding:
Section 56-3-8500. (A) The department may issue special motor vehicle license plates to World War II veterans or their spouses for private motor vehicles registered in their names. The fee for the issuance of this special motor vehicle license plate is twenty dollars biennially, which must be distributed to the State Department of Education and used to support and promote ROTC programs in the state's public schools. This twenty dollar fee shall be in addition to the regular motor vehicle registration fee contained in Article 5, Chapter 3 of this title.
(B) Before the department produces and distributes a special license plate pursuant to this section, it must receive:
(1) four hundred prepaid applications for the special license plate or a deposit of four thousand dollars from the individual or organization seeking issuance of the license plate. If a deposit of four thousand dollars is made by an individual or organization pursuant to this section, the department must refund the four thousand dollars once an equivalent amount of license plate fees is collected for that organization's license plate. If the equivalent amount is not collected within four years of the first issuance of the license plate, then the department must retain the deposit.
(2) a plan to market the sale of the special license plate that must be approved by the department.
(C) If the department receives less than three hundred biennial applications and renewals for a particular license plate, it shall not produce additional special license plates in that series. The department shall continue to issue special license plates of that series until the existing inventory is exhausted."
SECTION 2. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
