§463.76. Special prestige license plates; Jaycees
A. The secretary of the Department of Public Safety and Corrections shall establish a special prestige license plate which may be issued, upon application, to any citizen of Louisiana who is an active or past member of the Louisiana Jaycees, or any citizen who is a family member of a Jaycee, and only when the department has received a minimum of one hundred applications for such plate. These license plates shall be restricted to passenger cars, pickup trucks, vans, and recreational vehicles.
B. The plate shall be white with blue and gold lettering. The top of the plate shall bear the word "LOUISIANA". The Louisiana Jaycees logo shall appear on the left center portion followed by one or more numeric digits for registration purposes. The bottom of the plate shall bear the word "Jaycees".
C. These plates may be issued, upon application, in the same manner as any other motor vehicle license plate.
D. The charge for the plate shall be the standard motor vehicle license tax imposed by Article VII, Section 5 of the Constitution of Louisiana and a handling fee of three dollars and fifty cents to be retained by the department to offset a portion of the administrative costs.
E. A royalty fee of twenty-five dollars for the use of the official logo of the Louisiana Jaycees shall be collected by the department. Upon receipt of the fee provided in this Subsection, the secretary shall record the name of the applicant and shall forward the fee directly to the Community Service Foundation of the Baton Rouge Junior Chamber of Commerce, Inc. within three months of receipt. The money shall be used solely for charitable purposes for residents of the state of Louisiana, including but not limited to donations made to Jaycee chapters statewide to fund their local community service projects, other nonprofit organizations recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) organization, or for educational scholarships to accredited Louisiana universities.
F. The executive office of the Community Service Foundation of the Baton Rouge Junior Chamber of Commerce, Inc. shall be responsible for certifying applications on a form approved by the Department of Public Safety and Corrections to be submitted with other required registration papers. If a person holding a plate has his membership in the Louisiana Jaycees canceled for cause, the executive office of the Community Service Foundation of the Baton Rouge Junior Chamber of Commerce, Inc. shall notify the Department of Public Safety and Corrections so that the plate may be recovered and the registration canceled.
G. The secretary shall establish rules in accordance with the Administrative Procedure Act as are necessary to implement the provisions of this Section, including but not limited to rules governing the collection and disbursement of the donation and the transfer and disposition of such license plates.
H. Upon the signing of a contract authorizing the use of the logo of the Louisiana Jaycees, the secretary of the Department of Public Safety and Corrections shall establish prestige plates in accordance with the provisions of this Section. This contract shall include an agreement on the part of the Louisiana Jaycees to use the royalty fees as provided in Subsection E of this Section.
