The bill creates the stegosaurus state fossil license plate for motor

organization to qualify applicants for issuance of the license plate. The
organization must:
  • Be headquartered in Colorado;
  • Have been in existence for at least 5 years;
  • Be a nonprofit organization;
  • Provide educational services about the science and history
of dinosaurs, dinosaur fossils, and related paleontology
sites in the state;
  • Support the stewardship and preservation of dinosaur
fossils, tracks, and other natural resources;

part of a national natural landmark; and
  • Have been conducting preservation, stewardship, and
management of dinosaur fossils, dinosaur tracks,
paleontology sites, and other natural resources for at least

An applicant qualifies for issuance of the license plate if the
applicant makes a donation to the organization and pays all required taxes
and fees. In addition to the standard motor vehicle fees, the applicant
must pay 2 one-time fees of $25 for issuance of the license plate. One fee
is credited to the highway users tax fund and the other fee is credited to
the licensing services cash fund.
