TO AMEND SECTION 56-3-3710, AS AMENDED, CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, RELATING TO THE ISSUANCE OF SPECIAL LICENSE PLATES WITH COLLEGE OR UNIVERSITY EMBLEMS, SO AS TO PROVIDE FOR THE ISSUANCE OF SPECIAL LICENSE PLATES THAT CONTAIN THE EMBLEMS OF THE UNITED STATES' SERVICE ACADEMIES.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. Section 56-3-3710(A) of the 1976 Code, as last amended by Act 63 of 1999, is further amended to read:
"(A) The department may issue to owners of private passenger motor vehicles special motor vehicle license plates which may have imprinted on them an emblem, a seal, or other symbol the department considers appropriate of a public college or university or independent institution of higher learning, defined in Section 59-113-50, located in this State, or either of the United States' service academies. A school may submit to the department for its approval the emblem, seal, or other symbol it desires to be used for its respective special license plate. A school also may request a change in the emblem, seal, or other symbol once the existing inventory of the license plate has been exhausted. The fee for this special license plate is seventy dollars every two years in addition to the regular motor vehicle registration fee set forth in Article 5, Chapter 3 of this title. This special license plate must be of the same size and general design of regular motor vehicle license plates. The special license plates must be issued or revalidated for a biennial period which expires twenty-four months from the month they are issued."
SECTION 2. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
