              Section 2E of chapter 90 of the General Laws, as appearing in the 2012 Official Edition, is hereby amended by adding the following subsection:-

              (d) The registrar shall furnish, upon application, to the owners of private passenger motor vehicles distinctive registration plates which shall display on their face a design memorializing the tragic events that occurred at the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013 and the words “Boston Strong”. There shall be a fee of not less than $50 for such plates in addition to the established registration fee for private passenger motor vehicles, which shall be payable at the time of registration of the vehicle and at each renewal thereof. The portion of the total fee remaining after the deduction of costs directly attributable to the issuance of such plates shall be directed to the One Fund Boston, Inc. and distributed by the One Fund Boston, Inc. at its discretion. In the event of the dissolution or liquidation of the One Fund Boston, Inc., the registrar may (i) cease to furnish the registration plates authorized in this subsection or (ii) direct the portion of the total fee remaining after the deduction of costs directly attributable to the issuance of the plates to a fund or an organization exempt from taxation under the provisions of section 501 (C)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code for costs related to the design, construction or maintenance of a memorial for the victims of the tragic events that occurred at the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013.
