Section 4503.77 | [Former R.C. 4503.771, amended and renumbered by H.B. 74, 134th General Assembly, effective 6/30/2021] Transmitting contribution amounts for specialty license plates.
(A) The sponsor of a specialty license plate, when the contributions for that specialty license plate are credited to the license plate contribution fund established in section 4501.21 of the Revised Code, shall verify the contact information for that sponsor by the first day of December of each year on a form established by the registrar of motor vehicles. If the sponsor fails to verify such contact information by the thirty-first day of December of any year, the registrar, beginning the first day of January of the following year, shall transmit the contribution for each registration involving that specialty license plate to the treasurer of state for deposit into the general revenue fund, instead of for deposit in the license plate contribution fund. The registrar also immediately shall send a notice to the sponsor that no additional funds will be deposited into the license plate contribution fund until the contact information form is received by the registrar. Upon receiving the contact information form, the registrar shall resume transmitting the contributions received for that license plate to the treasurer of state for deposit into the license plate contribution fund and later distribution to the sponsor.
(B) If the sponsor of a specialty license plate ceases to exist, the registrar shall deposit the contributions for the associated license plate into the general revenue fund. If that sponsor is later reestablished, the sponsor shall submit to the registrar written confirmation of the sponsor's reestablishment along with the contact information form. Upon receipt of the confirmation and form, the registrar shall resume transmitting all contributions received for the associated license plate into the license plate contribution fund for later distribution to the sponsor.
