TO AMEND CHAPTER 3, TITLE 56, CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, RELATING TO REGISTRATION AND LICENSING OF MOTOR VEHICLES, BY ADDING ARTICLE 34, SO AS TO PROVIDE FOR SPECIAL LICENSE PLATES FOR MEMBERS OF THE NATIONAL WILD TURKEY FEDERATION, TO PROVIDE THAT FEES COLLECTED ABOVE THE COST OF A REGULAR MOTOR VEHICLE REGISTRATION FEE MUST BE DISTRIBUTED TO THE NATIONAL WILDLIFE TURKEY FEDERATION, AND TO PROVIDE FOR THE CONDITIONS UNDER WHICH THESE PLATES SHALL BE ISSUED.
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 56-3-3410. (A) The Department of Public Safety may issue special motor vehicle license plates to members of the National Wild Turkey Federation for private motor vehicles registered in their names. The fee for this special license plate is seventy dollars every two years in addition to the regular motor vehicle registration fee contained in Article 5. The license plates issued pursuant to this section must conform to a design agreed to by the department and the chief executive officer of the organization. The plates must be issued or revalidated for a biennial period which expires twenty-four months from the month they are issued.
(B) The fees collected pursuant to this section above the cost of the regular motor vehicle registration fee must be distributed to the National Wild Turkey Federation.
Section 56-3-3420. (A) Before the Department of Public Safety 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 shall retain the deposit; and
(2) a plan to market the sale of the special license plate which must be approved by the department.
(B) If the department receives fewer than three hundred biennial applications and renewals for a particular special license plate, it may 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.
