    8  title or register motor vehicles, vessels, mobile homes, or off
    9  highway vehicles; issue or transfer registration license plates
   10  or decals; electronically transfer fees due for the title and
   11  registration process; and perform inquiries for title,
   12  registration, and lienholder verification and certification of
   13  service providers is expressly preempted to the state, and the
   14  department shall have regulatory authority over the system. The
   15  electronic filing system shall be available for use statewide
   16  and applied uniformly throughout the state. An entity that, in
   17  the normal course of its business, sells products that must be
   18  titled or registered, provides title and registration services
   19  on behalf of its consumers and meets all established
   20  requirements may be an authorized electronic filing system agent
   21  and shall not be precluded from participating in the electronic
   22  filing system in any county. Upon request from a qualified
   23  entity, the tax collector shall appoint the entity as an
   24  authorized electronic filing system agent for that county,
   25  regardless of the county in which the entity is physically
   26  located. An entity may be an authorized electronic filing system
   27  agent in more than one county at any given time. Upon
   28  appointment as an authorized electronic filing system agent by a
   29  tax collector in a county other than the county where the agent
   30  is physically located and absent an interlocal agreement between
   31  tax collectors, any statutory service fees shall be divided
   32  equally between the tax collector that appointed the agent and
   33  the tax collector in the county where the agent is physically
   34  located. The department shall adopt rules in accordance with
   35  chapter 120 to replace the December 10, 2009, program standards
   36  and to administer the provisions of this section, including, but
   37  not limited to, establishing participation requirements,
   38  certification of service providers, electronic filing system
   39  requirements, and enforcement authority for noncompliance. The
   40  December 10, 2009, program standards, excluding any standards
   41  which conflict with this 1subsection, shall remain in effect
   42  until the rules are adopted. An authorized electronic filing
   43  agent may charge a fee to the customer for use of the electronic
   44  filing system.
