Subject: ORS 805.205(2)(a) requires DMV to collect a surcharge,
as determined by DMV, for non-profit group plates. The surcharge amount may not
be less than $2.50 per plate and not more than $16 for each non-profit group
plate issued or renewed. When setting the surcharge, DMV is required to consult
with the non-profit group for which plates are issued. In August of 2009, after
consulting with existing non-profit groups, DMV adopted OAR 735-040-0098 to set
the surcharge amount for non-profit group plates at $2.50 per plate. Under OAR
735-040-0097, a non-profit group may request that DMV collect a surcharge of
more than $2.50 per plate.
On May 18, 2010,
DMV received a request for non-profit group plates that recognize fallen public
safety officers pursuant to ORS 805.205(3)(b). The group requesting the plates
requested that DMV set the surcharge at $8 per plate for each year of the
registration period. DMV consulted with the group and determined to set the
surcharge at $8 per plate for each year of the registration period.
rule amendment replaces a temporary amendment DMV filed to coincide with
issuance of the Fallen Public Safety Officer registration plates and to avoid a
possible loss in revenue to the non-profit group requesting the plates.
