BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF SOUTH DAKOTA:
    Section 1. That § 32-5-180 be amended to read:
    32-5-180. The special interest motor vehicle plate shall be issued in place of the regular plates issued pursuant to § 32-5-85. The special interest motor vehicle plate shall be numbered and designed by the secretary to be visibly distinct from regular noncommercial license plates and shall be either numbered or personalized. If the special interest motor vehicle plate is personalized, the plate shall conform to the requirements established for special personalized license plates in § 32-5-89.2. The special interest motor vehicle plate shall be reflectorized and validated with a decal each year in the same manner as noncommercial license plates. Notwithstanding the requirements of § 32-5-98, a vehicle for which a special interest motor vehicle license plate is issued is not required to display a number plate on the front of the

vehicle. The special interest motor vehicle license plate shall be securely fastened to the rear of the special interest motor vehicle in a horizontal and upright position.
    Section 2. That § 32-5-182 be amended to read:
    32-5-182. An application for a special interest motor vehicle license plate, as provided for in § 32-5-179, shall include a signed affidavit wherein the applicant attests to the following:

            (1)    The motor vehicle for which the special interest motor vehicle license plate is sought is driven less than six seven thousand five hundred miles per year;
            (2)    The motor vehicle for which the special interest motor vehicle license plate is sought is not used for general or commercial transportation, but rather for occasional transportation, public displays, parades, and related pleasure or hobby activities; and
            (3)    The current reading on the odometer of the special interest motor vehicle.
    The secretary may, at any time, require an applicant to provide additional information to determine if the applicant meets the special interest motor vehicle license plate requirements.
    An applicant shall annually, at the time of registration renewal, submit the current odometer reading of the special interest motor vehicle. If an applicant fails to provide this information the registration may not be renewed.
