       4-00510-22                                             2022364__
    1                        A bill to be entitled                      
    2         An act relating to specialty license plate presales;
    3         amending s. 320.08053, F.S.; revising the presale
    4         voucher sales requirement for out-of-state college or
    5         university license plates; requiring the Department of
    6         Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles to extend the
    7         presale period by a specified period for certain
    8         approved specialty license plate organizations;
    9         providing a directive to the Division of Law Revision;
   10         providing an effective date.
   12  Be It Enacted by the Legislature of the State of Florida:
   14         Section 1. Paragraph (b) of subsection (2) of section
   15  320.08053, Florida Statutes, is amended to read:
   16         320.08053 Establishment of specialty license plates.—
   17         (2)
   18         (b) Within 24 months after the presale specialty license
   19  plate voucher is established, the approved specialty license
   20  plate organization must record with the department a minimum of
   21  3,000 voucher sales, or in the case of an out-of-state college
   22  or university license plate, 4,000 voucher sales, before
   23  manufacture of the license plate may commence. The department
   24  shall extend this presale period by an additional 24 months for
   25  an approved specialty license plate organization that, as of the
   26  effective date of this act, is in the presale period but has not
   27  recorded at least 3,000 voucher sales. If, at the conclusion of
   28  the 24-month presale period, the minimum sales requirement has
   29  not been met, the specialty plate is deauthorized and the
   30  department shall discontinue development of the plate and
   31  discontinue issuance of the presale vouchers. Upon
   32  deauthorization of the license plate or if the plate has met the
   33  presale requirement but has not been issued, a purchaser of the
   34  license plate voucher may use the annual use fee collected as a
   35  credit towards any other specialty license plate or apply for a
   36  refund on a form prescribed by the department.
   37         Section 2. The Division of Law Revision is directed to
   38  replace the phrase “the effective date of this act” wherever it
   39  occurs in this act with the date this act becomes a law.
   40         Section 3. This act shall take effect upon becoming a law.
