    AN ACT concerning transportation.
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
    Section 5. The Illinois Vehicle Code is amended by changing
Section 3-806.4 as follows:
    (625 ILCS 5/3-806.4)  (from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 3-806.4)
    Sec. 3-806.4. Gold Star recipients. Commencing with the
1991 registration year, upon proper application, the Secretary
of State shall issue one pair of registration plates to any
Illinois resident, who as the surviving widow or widower, or in
the absence thereof, as the surviving parent, is awarded the
Gold Star by the United States in recognition of spouses or
children who served in the Armed Forces of the United States
and lost their lives while in service whether in peacetime or
war. If the parent no longer survives, the Secretary of State
shall issue the plates to a surviving sibling, of the person
who served in the Armed Forces, who is an Illinois resident. No
more than one set of plates shall be issued for each Gold Star
awarded, and only one surviving parent, or in the absence of a
surviving parent, only one surviving sibling shall be issued a
set of registration plates, except for those surviving parents
who, as recipients of the Gold Star, have legally separated or
divorced, in which case each surviving parent shall be allowed
one set of registration plates. Registration plates issued
under this Section shall be for first division vehicles and
second division vehicles of 8,000 pounds or less. Through the
2006 registration year, an An applicant shall be charged a $15
fee for the original issuance in addition to the appropriate
registration fee which shall be deposited into the Road Fund to
help defray the administrative processing costs. Beginning
with the 2007 registration year, an applicant shall be charged
only the appropriate registration fee.
