    [TRULY AGREED TO AND FINALLY PASSED]
    HOUSE BILL NO. 1141
    96TH GENERAL ASSEMBLY
    4675L.03T 2012
    ________________________________________
    AN ACT
    To repeal section 301.3163, RSMo, and to enact in lieu thereof one new section relating to the Don't Tread on Me license plate.
    ________________________________________

    Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the state of Missouri, as follows:

    Section A. Section 301.3163, RSMo, is repealed and one new section enacted in lieu thereof, to be known as section 301.3163, to read as follows:
    301.3163. Any person may apply for [special] specialty personalized "Don't Tread on Me" motor vehicle license plates for any vehicle such person owns, either solely or jointly, other than an apportioned motor vehicle or a commercial motor vehicle licensed in excess of eighteen thousand pounds gross weight. Such person shall make application for the [special] specialty personalized license plates on a form provided by the director of revenue. The director shall then issue specialty personalized license plates bearing letters or numbers or a combination thereof as determined by the [advisory committee established in section 301.129] director, with the words "DON'T TREAD ON ME" [in place of the words "SHOW-ME STATE"] centered on the bottom one-fourth of the plate, in bold, all capital letters, and with lettering identical to the lettering used for the word "MISSOURI" on the regular state license plate. Such words shall be no smaller than forty-eight point type. Such plates shall be tiger yellow beginning at the top and bottom, with the color fading into white in the center. All numbers and letters shall be black. The left side shall contain a reproduction of the "Gadsen Snake" in black and white, with the snake to be three inches in height and two inches wide, and sitting on green grass that is two and one-quarter inches wide. Upon payment of a fifteen dollar fee in addition to the regular registration fees, and presentation of any documents which may be required by law, the director of revenue shall issue to the vehicle owner a specialty personalized plate. Notwithstanding the provisions of section 301.144, no additional fee shall be charged for the personalization of license plates issued under this section. Such license plates shall be made with fully reflective material with a common color scheme and design, shall be clearly visible at night, and shall be aesthetically attractive, as prescribed by section 301.130.

    If you pull it, you use it. If you pull it and you don't use it, you've done some thing wrong and you might not get another chance. Think about it before you pack it!

    It's run by State employees, expect less, you won't be disappointed.

    i imagine it will take a month or so for me. After all it is a new design and need to get stamped with my plate number. im sure it takes 3 days to make the plate, and 21 days to file paperwork, another 3 days to lose the paperwork, and 2 more days to stand in line.

    I just called Department of Revenue in Jeff City to inquire on my plate. It appears that DMV is still NOT issuing this plate for motorcycles. I seem to be put in a stack of papers since JULY and no further action has been taken. They are evidently issuing them for regular vehicles but not motorcycles can anyone help with who i need to contact?

    I applied fpr mine almost 2 months ago (Vehicle) heard nothing. You might try your State Rep and State Senator, their office wil get an answer for you. Howver, all state reps and half the senate in Missouri is up for re-election and district lines redrawn, so if you get no response soon you'll have to look at election results and after Jan. 1 2013 look to see who you rep and senator are because of the redistricting. That is simple enough....

    16 weeks weeks and counting finally got a reply from DMV on my license plate

    Mr ..................,



    I have not received a response from you regarding the phone message I left yesterday asking you to return my call so I also wanted to email to attempt to contact you and explain the delay that has happened with the documentation you have submitted to the department for your Donít Tread on Me Motorcycle plate.



    First, let me apologize about the time frame of your pending transaction. When you began your application this plate type was pending new design passed through legislation.



    Due to your application being the first application received for this plate type my staff requested a set up process within our systems and with the manufacturer to be able to make and process this new plate type.



    I have checked on the status of setting up this plate type and we hope to have completed by next week.



    Once the plate type is completed we may process your order.



    I have instructed my staff to do a rush order on your plate due to the time inconvenience that has occurred setting up this plate type. Once ordered the plate can be made within a few days with this approval.



    I will notify you once the plate is ordered and again when the rush order for your plate has been completed and sent to your local license office for pick up.



    Again, I am sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused and If you have any questions regarding this please email me back or contact me at the phone number below.



    Thanks

    I ordered mine 9/10 or so; still haven't seen hide nor hair. Went by the local license bureau (tags are due now) and had them check on it. He said they have reserved the license plate, however, it hasn't been sent to them yet. They guy there said he hasn't seen the new plate yet. He told me to come back by around the second week of November if not received.

    I mailed a letter to DMV in J.C., they shoukd get it today or tomorrow. I asked for an update on the plate application. O hope they cal lor email. I know of another person who contcate them, he was the "FIRST" in the State to apply. They sent the wrong/old Don't Tred On Me Plate which he sent back. he is now first on the list and will email me when he gets his.

    I'll post here if and when I hear anything or get my plate. Frustrating, but it is the Guberment!

    It is the Gubermint, but it is also a bureaucracy that is just chock full of bureaucrats with a few anti-liberty bureaucrats sprinkled in for good measure. Everybody "knows" those "Don't Tread On Me" folks are gun nuts.

    The "PLATE"!

    After "intervention" by the offcie of my State Senator Brian Nieves I just had a call from the MO. Dept. of Revenue in Jefferson City. The "Don't Tred On Me" license plate is at the local DMV Office ready to be picked up. The DMV failed to notify me that it was sent. At least I'll get it tomorrow, picture to follow assuming they sent the correct plate.

    Remember to thank the DMV for getting it to you before it expired. LOL
    Looking forward to pics.
