In addition to the license plate, a person issued such a license plate may request a decal for the order of the arrow, wood badge, God and country award and eagle scout for each license plate. Such license plates shall be issued for the same time as other license plates upon proper registration and payment of the regular license fee as provided in K.S.A. 8-143, and amendments thereto, and either the payment to the county treasurer of the logo use royalty payment established by the council or the presentation of the annual logo use authorization statement provided for in subsection (b).
(b) A Boy Scouts of America council may authorize the use of their logo to be affixed on license plates or any decal as provided by this section. Any royalty payment received pursuant to this section shall be used to support the Boy Scouts of America. Any motor vehicle owner or lessee annually may apply to the Boy Scouts of America for the use of such logo. Upon annual application and payment to either: (1) The Boy Scouts of America in an amount of not less than $25 nor more than $100 as a logo use royalty payment for each license plate and decal to be issued, the Boy Scouts of America shall issue to the motor vehicle owner or lessee, without further charge, a logo use authorization statement, which shall be presented by the motor vehicle owner or lessee at the time of registration; or (2) the county treasurer of the logo use royalty payment for each license plate to be issued.

Application for registration of a passenger vehicle or truck and issuance of the license plate under this section shall be made by the owner or lessee in a manner prescribed by the director of vehicles upon forms furnished by the director.

No renewal of registration shall be made to any applicant until such applicant provides to the county treasurer either the annual logo use authorization statement provided for in subsection (b) or the payment of the annual logo use royalty payment established by the council. If such logo use authorization statement is not presented at the time of registration or faxed by the Boy Scouts of America, or the annual use royalty payment is not made to the county treasurer, the applicant shall be required to comply with K.S.A. 8-143, and amendments thereto, and return the license plate to the county treasurer of such person's residence.
