This bill authorizes an Ancient Order of Hibernians license plate. The design of the license plate would be chosen by the Chief Administrator of the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (commission) in consultation with the Ancient Order of Hibernians, New Jersey State Board. In addition to all fees otherwise required by law for the registration of a motor vehicle there is an application fee of $50 and an annual renewal fee of $10 for these plates. The additional fees, after the deduction of the cost of producing and publicizing the plates, will be deposited into a special non-lapsing fund known as the "Ancient Order of Hibernians License Plate Fund." The proceeds of the fund are to be annually appropriated to the Ancient Order of Hibernians, New Jersey State Board. The chief administrator is required to annually certify the average cost per license plate in producing, issuing, and publicizing the Ancient Order of Hibernians license plates. If the average cost exceeds $50 for two consecutive fiscal years, the chief administrator may discontinue the license plate program. The bill provides that no State or other public funds may be used by the commission for the initial cost of producing issuing, and publicizing the availability of Ancient Order of Hibernians license plates or any computer programming changes which may be necessary to implement the Ancient Order of Hibernians license plate program. The bill also requires that the Ancient Order of Hibernians, New Jersey State Board, or other individual or entity designated by the board, contribute monies in an amount to be determined by the chief administrator, not to exceed a total of $25,000, to be used to offset the initial costs incurred by the commission for producing issuing, and publicizing the availability of Ancient Order of Hibernians license plates, and any computer programming which may be necessary to implement the program. The bill prohibits the commission from designing, producing, issuing, or publicizing the availability of Ancient Order of Hibernians license plates, or making any necessary computer programming changes, until: (1) the Ancient Order of Hibernians, New Jersey State Board, or its designee, has provided the commission with the money necessary to offset the initial costs incurred by the commission in establishing the Ancient Order of Hibernians license plate program; and (2) the Ancient Order of Hibernians, New Jersey State Board, or its designee, has provided the commission with a minimum of 500 completed applications for Ancient Order of Hibernians license plates, upon the availability for purchase of those plates. The chief administrator is responsible for publicizing the availability of the license plates on the commission's website. The Ancient Order of Hibernians, New Jersey State Board, or any individual or entity designated by the board, may also publicize the availability of Ancient Order of Hibernians license plates in any manner the board deems appropriate. The provisions of the bill remain inoperative until the appropriate applications and fees required to offset the initial costs incurred by the commission are provided by the board or its designee, and the bill expires after 12 months if sufficient applications and fees to offset the initial costs are not received.
