Prepared by: Transportation Committee (TR)
The bill amends ss. 320.02 and 322.08, F.S., to create $1 voluntary contribution check-offs on a motor vehicle application (initial registration and renewal) and a driver license or identification card application (initial, renewal, or replacement). The check-offs are created for the following entities and causes:
Autism Services and Supports – contributions must be distributed to Achievement and Rehabilitation Centers, Inc., Autism Services Fund.
Support Our Troops – contributions must be distributed to Support Our Troops, Inc., a Florida not-for-profit organization.
The legislature passed a moratorium on the creation of new voluntary contributions on motor vehicle registration and driver license forms that ends on July 1, 2013 with limited exceptions. These two organizations have met these exceptions to the moratorium.
If approved by the Governor, these provisions take effect July 1, 2012.
