The act creates the epilepsy awareness license plate for motor vehicles. The department of revenue must designate a nonprofit organization to qualify applicants for issuance of the license plate. The organization must:
- Be headquartered in Colorado;
- Have been in existence for at least 5 years;
- Be a nonprofit organization;
- Provide education to the public about epilepsy;
- Offer programs for youth and adults with epilepsy; and
- Fund services and support for those affected by epilepsy.
An applicant qualifies for issuance of the license plate if the applicant makes a donation to the organization and pays all required taxes and fees. In addition to the standard motor vehicle fees, the applicant must pay 2 one-time fees of $25 for issuance of the license plate. One fee is credited to the highway users tax fund and the other to the licensing services cash fund.
For the 2022-23 state fiscal year, $29,671 is appropriated for use by the division of motor vehicles in the department of revenue (department) to implement the act, of which amount $3,168 is reappropriated to the office of the governor for use by the office of information technology to provide information technology services for the department.
