Bill summary

Conference report recommends the following changes to 4th edition to reconcile matters in controversy. Amends GS 20-63 by making an organizational change, enacting GS 20-63(b1) to restore special registration plates deleted by previous edition, and creates new special registration plates under the new subsection. Provides that when the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) registers a vehicle or renews the registration of a vehicle on or after July 1, 2015, the DMV must send the owner a replacement special license plate in a standardized format in accordance with current law. Repeals GS 20-63(b1), as enacted by the act, effective July 1, 2016.
Enacts new subdivision to GS 20-79.7(c) to direct the DMV to deduct the cost of issuing replacement full-color special license plates from the Special Registration Plate Account. This new subdivision is effective July 1, 2015, and expires July 1, 2016.
Amends GS 20-79.7(b) to reduce the amount put toward the Collegiate and Cultural Attraction Plate Account out of the fee imposed for the NC Victim Assistance special plate from $20 to $10.
Directs the Department of Crime Control and Public Safety and the Department of Transportation to study whether full-color special license plates should be phased out or continued to be authorized. Provides reporting requirements. Effective when the act becomes law.
