The owners or lessees of motor vehicles who obtain special plates pursuant to this section may designate that the proceeds from such fees shall be allocated to a particular named school. The county clerk shall remit such proceeds to the local education agency operating such named school and the local school board shall allocate such proceeds for the benefit of the named school and shall make such funds available to the school. Any undesignated proceeds from such fees shall be allocated as provided in this section.

APPROVED this day of 1998

Pursuant to Article III, Section 18, of the Constitution of the State of Tennessee, the Governor had House Bill No. 2993 in his possession longer than ten (10) days, so therefore the bill becomes law without the Governor's signature.
