HB 131/LM (BR 401) - P. Bather, R. Meeks

     AN ACT relating to special license plates.
     Create a new section of KRS Chapter 186, relating to the registration of motor vehicles, to create a special license plate for the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodges; establish minimum number of 900 applications before the plate is to be printed; establish special fund for extra fees from the plate to be deposited and used to promote literacy programs, offer computer training, and support community issues.


     HCS/LM - Delete provisions of existing bill and insert in lieu thereof the provision that the first 900 applicants for a Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodges (MWPHGL) special license plate must pay a $50 state fee for the plate to offset computer programming costs before the plate is required to be printed; require that until the plate is printed, the Transportation Cabinet must send county clerks a monthly status report on the number of persons that have applied for the MWPHGL license plate; provide that if 900 requests with the appropriate state fee are not achieved within one year, the cabinet is to refund the fee to applicants and the provisions of the bill are automatically repealed; provide that if an MWPHGL license plate achieves the 900 requests and is actually printed, the cost for the plate is the same $15 fee as charged for a regular license plate; provide that persons may make an additional voluntary $15 contribution that a county clerk will send quarterly to the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodges of Kentucky; require the Lodges to use money generated from the license plate to be used for public programs not limited to MWPHGL members to promote literacy, offer computer training, and support community issues.
