SECTION 1. Chapter 15, Title 56 of the 1976 Code is amended by adding:
Section 56-15-800. (A) The Department of Motor Vehicles shall provide for the licensing of a promoter of a recreational vehicle show, whose purpose is the sale of new recreational vehicles. The promoter may be an out-of-state entity. An out-of-state promoter shall not pay a license fee greater than ten times the amount charged in-state promoters applying to operate a similar show.
(B) The department shall provide for the licensing of out-of-state or in-state manufacturers who are allowed to bring new recreational vehicles into an area of promotion, from which stock the various dealers participating in the show may display and sell at retail to patrons of the show. The licensing fees are as follows:
(1) out-of-state manufacturers must be charged a special license fee of one hundred dollars for each new recreational vehicle they transport into this State for display in a promotional event; and
(2) in-state manufacturers are exempt from this special licensing fee.
(C) The department shall provide for a special license for out-of-state recreational vehicle dealers who are allowed to transport new recreational vehicles into an area of promotion for the purpose of display and sale at retail to patrons of the event. The licensing fees are as follows:
(1) out-of-state dealers must be charged two hundred dollars for a special license;
(2) out-of-state dealers transporting new recreational vehicles into the State for display and possible sale at a promotional show shall pay a specific license fee of one hundred dollars for each recreational vehicle brought into this State; and
(3) in-state dealers are exempt from the provisions of this subsection.
(D) The provisions contained in Article 1 of this chapter are not applicable when a license is issued to a promoter of a recreational vehicle show.
(E) Promoters of recreational vehicle shows may not deny licensed in-state dealers from participating in a promotional show. If more dealers apply for permission from the promoter to participate than can ordinarily be accommodated in a show, the in-state licensed dealers shall receive first preference over out-of-state dealers.
(F) Promoters of recreational vehicle shows may not deny licensed in-state manufacturers an opportunity of participating in a promotional show. If more manufacturers apply for permission from the promoter to participate than can be accommodated in the show, the in-state licensed manufacturers shall receive first preference over out-of-state manufacturers.
(G) Promoters may be duly licensed businesses that are for-profit or not-for-profit corporations engaged in fraternal affairs for the benefit of their membership.
(H) Nothing in this section excludes a dealer from complying with any law that pertains to the sale and delivery of new recreational vehicles as they apply to in-state dealers.
(I) Sale of recreational vehicles made under the provisions of this section that will be registered in another state and that will be removed from this State within seventy-two hours from the promotional show by the purchaser or an agent of the purchaser for use outside of this State are not be subject to the State's sales tax."
