    AN ACT concerning transportation.
 
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
 
    Section 5. The State Finance Act is amended by adding
Section 5.935 as follows:
 
    (30 ILCS 105/5.935 new)
    Sec. 5.935. The Folds of Honor Foundation Fund.
 
    Section 10. The Illinois Vehicle Code is amended by
changing Section 3-699.14 as follows:
 
    (625 ILCS 5/3-699.14)
    Sec. 3-699.14. Universal special license plates.
    (a) In addition to any other special license plate, the
Secretary, upon receipt of all applicable fees and
applications made in the form prescribed by the Secretary, may
issue Universal special license plates to residents of
Illinois on behalf of organizations that have been authorized
by the General Assembly to issue decals for Universal special
license plates. Appropriate documentation, as determined by
the Secretary, shall accompany each application. Authorized
organizations shall be designated by amendment to this
Section. When applying for a Universal special license plate
the applicant shall inform the Secretary of the name of the
authorized organization from which the applicant will obtain a
decal to place on the plate. The Secretary shall make a record
of that organization and that organization shall remain
affiliated with that plate until the plate is surrendered,
revoked, or otherwise cancelled. The authorized organization
may charge a fee to offset the cost of producing and
distributing the decal, but that fee shall be retained by the
authorized organization and shall be separate and distinct
from any registration fees charged by the Secretary. No decal,
sticker, or other material may be affixed to a Universal
special license plate other than a decal authorized by the
General Assembly in this Section or a registration renewal
sticker. The special plates issued under this Section shall be
affixed only to passenger vehicles of the first division,
including motorcycles and autocycles, or motor vehicles of the
second division weighing not more than 8,000 pounds. Plates
issued under this Section shall expire according to the
multi-year procedure under Section 3-414.1 of this Code.
    (b) The design, color, and format of the Universal special
license plate shall be wholly within the discretion of the
Secretary. Universal special license plates are not required
to designate "Land of Lincoln", as prescribed in subsection
(b) of Section 3-412 of this Code. The design shall allow for
the application of a decal to the plate. Organizations
authorized by the General Assembly to issue decals for
Universal special license plates shall comply with rules
adopted by the Secretary governing the requirements for and
approval of Universal special license plate decals. The
Secretary may, in his or her discretion, allow Universal
special license plates to be issued as vanity or personalized
plates in accordance with Section 3-405.1 of this Code. The
Secretary of State must make a version of the special
registration plates authorized under this Section in a form
appropriate for motorcycles and autocycles.
    (c) When authorizing a Universal special license plate,
the General Assembly shall set forth whether an additional fee
is to be charged for the plate and, if a fee is to be charged,
the amount of the fee and how the fee is to be distributed.
When necessary, the authorizing language shall create a
special fund in the State treasury into which fees may be
deposited for an authorized Universal special license plate.
Additional fees may only be charged if the fee is to be paid
over to a State agency or to a charitable entity that is in
compliance with the registration and reporting requirements of
the Charitable Trust Act and the Solicitation for Charity Act.
Any charitable entity receiving fees for the sale of Universal
special license plates shall annually provide the Secretary of
State a letter of compliance issued by the Attorney General
verifying that the entity is in compliance with the Charitable
Trust Act and the Solicitation for Charity Act.
    (d) Upon original issuance and for each registration
renewal period, in addition to the appropriate registration
fee, if applicable, the Secretary shall collect any additional
fees, if required, for issuance of Universal special license
plates. The fees shall be collected on behalf of the
organization designated by the applicant when applying for the
plate. All fees collected shall be transferred to the State
agency on whose behalf the fees were collected, or paid into
the special fund designated in the law authorizing the
organization to issue decals for Universal special license
plates. All money in the designated fund shall be distributed
by the Secretary subject to appropriation by the General
Assembly.
