This bill requires the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (commission) to issue special Developmental Disability Awareness license plates to persons who wish to show their support for people with developmental disabilities and their families and caregivers. In addition to the registration number and other markings otherwise prescribed by law, these license plates should include words or a slogan and an emblem indicating support for, or interest in, developmental disabilities. In addition to all fees otherwise required by law for the registration of a motor vehicle, an application fee of $50 and an annual renewal fee of $10 are required for these special plates. These 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 "Developmental Disability Awareness License Plate Fund." The proceeds of the fund are to be annually appropriated to the Special Needs Housing Trust Fund established pursuant to section 1 of P.L.2005, c.163 (C.34:1B-25a) and used to support the development and construction of community residences and permanent supportive housing for individuals with special needs. The chief administrator is required to annually certify the average cost per license plate in producing, issuing, and publicizing Developmental Disability Awareness license plates. If the average cost exceeds $50 for two consecutive fiscal years, the chief administrator may discontinue the license plate program.
