To enact sections 4501.33 and 4503.561 of the Revised Code to authorize the issuance of a Ducks Unlimited license plate.

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Ohio:

SECTION 1 .  That sections 4501.33 and 4503.561 of the Revised Code be enacted to read as follows:

Sec. 4501.33.  There is hereby created in the state treasury the ducks unlimited license plate fund. The fund shall consist of the contributions that are paid to the registrar of motor vehicles by applicants who choose to obtain ducks unlimited license plates pursuant to section 4503.561 of the Revised Code.

A contribution deposited in the fund shall be paid to the state of Ohio chapter of ducks unlimited, inc., which shall deposit the contribution into a special bank account that it establishes. The special bank account shall be separate and distinct from any other account maintained by the state of Ohio chapter of ducks unlimited, inc., and shall be used exclusively for the purpose of protecting, enhancing, restoring, and managing wetlands and conserving wildlife habitat. Not later than January 15, 2000, and annually thereafter, the state of Ohio chapter of ducks unlimited, inc., shall notify the registrar in writing of the name, address, and account to which payments are to be made under this section.

All investment earnings of the ducks unlimited license plate fund shall be credited to the fund.

Sec. 4503.561.  (A) The owner or lessee of any passenger car, noncommercial motor vehicle, recreational vehicle, or other vehicle of a class approved by the registrar of motor vehicles may apply to the registrar for the registration of the vehicle and issuance of ducks unlimited license plates. The application for ducks unlimited license plates may be combined with a request for a special reserved license plate under section 4503.40 or 4503.42 of the Revised Code. Upon receipt of the completed application and compliance with division (B) of this section, the registrar shall issue to the applicant the appropriate vehicle registration and a set of ducks unlimited license plates with a validation sticker or a validation sticker alone when required by section 4503.191 of the Revised Code.

In addition to the letters and numbers ordinarily inscribed on the license plates, ducks unlimited license plates shall be inscribed with identifying words or markings representing ducks unlimited, inc., and approved by the registrar. Ducks unlimited license plates shall bear county identification stickers that identify the county of registration by name or number.

(B) The ducks unlimited license plates and validation sticker shall be issued upon receipt of a contribution as provided in division (C) of this section and upon payment of the regular license tax as prescribed under section 4503.04 of the Revised Code, a fee of ten dollars for the purpose of compensating the bureau of motor vehicles for additional services required in the issuing of the ducks unlimited license plates, any applicable motor vehicle tax levied under Chapter 4504. of the Revised Code, and compliance with all other applicable laws relating to the registration of motor vehicles. If the application for ducks unlimited license plates is combined with a request for a special reserved license plate under section 4503.40 or 4503.42 of the Revised Code, the license plate and validation sticker shall be issued upon payment of the contribution, fees, and taxes referred to or established in this division and the additional fee prescribed under section 4503.40 or 4503.42 of the Revised Code.

(C) For each application for registration and registration renewal the registrar receives under this section, the registrar shall collect a contribution of fifteen dollars. The registrar shall transmit this contribution to the treasurer of state for deposit in the ducks unlimited license plate fund created in section 4501.33 of the Revised Code.

The registrar shall deposit the additional fee of ten dollars specified in division (B) of this section that the applicant for registration pays for the purpose of compensating the bureau for the additional services required in the issuing of the applicant's ducks unlimited license plates in the state bureau of motor vehicles fund created in section 4501.25 of the Revised Code.
