Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:

"(A) A license

The plate must be of a strength and quality to provide a minimum service of five years. A new license plate including personalized and special plates must be provided by the department at intervals the department considers appropriate, but at least every six years. Beginning with the vehicle registration and license fees required by this title which are collected after July 1, 2002, two dollars of each biennial fee and one dollar of each annual fee collected from the vehicle owner must be placed by the Comptroller General in a special restricted account to be used solely by the Department of Public Safety for the costs associated with the production and issuance of new license plates. The department is not authorized to use this set aside money for any other purpose. A license plates plate issued for a vehicles vehicle in excess of twenty-six thousand pounds must be issued biennially, and no revalidation sticker may be issued for the plates plate. A license plates plate issued as permanent may be revalidated and replaced at intervals determined by the department.
Beginning with the newly designed standard license plates issued after January 1, 2003, a standard license plate must display the name of the county in which the vehicle is registered and property tax is paid. The county treasurer's office must distribute to a person a county-name decal with his paid property tax receipt when he pays the property tax on a vehicle. The person must place the county-name decal on the standard license plate issued to him by the Department of Public Safety. The department must produce and furnish the county-name decals to the county treasurers' offices for distribution."
SECTION 2. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
