2021 Regular Session

Bill Summary

The act creates the Special Olympics Colorado license plate for motor vehicles. A person qualifies for issuance of the plate if the person makes a donation to a designated nonprofit organization. The designated nonprofit organization must:

  • Be headquartered in Colorado;
  • Have existed for at least 40 years;
  • Provide year-round sports training and athletic competitions for children and adults with intellectual disabilities;
  • Collaborate with schools throughout Colorado to bring students together through shared activities that include sports, leadership opportunities, and health education and fitness; and
  • Ensure that the donation is spent in Colorado to support athletes with intellectual disabilities.

In addition to the normal fees for a license plate, a person must pay 2 additional one-time fees for the issuance of the plate. One of these fees is credited to the highway users tax fund and the other fee is credited to the licensing services cash fund.

For the 2021-22 state fiscal year, the act appropriates $13,460 for use by the division of motor vehicles to implement the act.

(Note: This summary applies to this bill as enacted.)
