Senator Ulibarri presented House Bill 16-1295 to the committee, along with the handout Attachment E. The bill creates the Chicano special license plate for passenger vehicles and motorcycles. The license plate will be available to those individuals who have made a donation to an organization that meets the bill's criteria of providing services to the Latino community and that is designated by the Department of Revenue (DOR). The DOR must designate one or more such organizations at least once every five years. The organization may establish a minimum donation amount. It can either provide services directly to the Latino community or through grants, in which case the organization may spend no more than 10 percent of money raised through the plates on administrative costs. DOR is to design the plate with input from interested persons.
