vans, and recreational vehicles. The license plate shall be of a color and design selected by
the Boy Scouts of America, provided that the plate shall comply with all requirements of R.S.
B. The prestige license plate shall be issued, upon application, to any citizen of
Louisiana in the same manner as any other motor vehicle license plate.

tax imposed by Article VII, Section 5 of the Constitution of Louisiana, plus an annual royalty
fee of twenty-five dollars for each plate, to be collected by the department every two years

Scout program. A handling fee of three dollars and fifty cents shall also be charged and
