(a) The administrator of the division of motor vehicles is authorized and
empowered to make, alter, or amend, such rules and regulations that he or she

night for a minimum distance of one hundred feet (100') with other
illumination. An additional fee of one dollar ($1.00) shall be payable upon the
initial issuance of the above described illuminated plates.
(b) All rules and regulations made under the provisions of
this section shall, after being approved by the governor and published at least
once in each county of the state, have the effect of law.
