    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,

    Section 5. The Illinois Vehicle Code is amended by changing
Section 3-611.5 as follows:
    (625 ILCS 5/3-611.5)
    Sec. 3-611.5. Fire Chief license plates.
    (a) The Secretary, upon receipt of a request from a
municipality or fire protection district that operates a fire
department, accompanied by an application and the appropriate
fee, may issue, to a fire chief of each municipal fire
department or fire protection district, special registration
plates designated as Fire Chief license plates. The special
plates issued under this Section shall be affixed only to
passenger vehicles of the first division or motor vehicles of
the second division weighing not more than 8,000 pounds, owned
by the fire department or the chief officer of the fire
department. Plates issued under this Section shall expire
according to the multi-year procedure established by Section

    (b) The design and color of the special plates shall be
wholly within the discretion of the Secretary. The plates are
not required to designate "Land of Lincoln" as prescribed in
subsection (b) of Section 3-412 of this Code. The Secretary may
prescribe rules governing the requirements and approval of the
special plates. The fee for this plate for a vehicle owned by
the fire chief shall be the same as the fee prescribed for
first division vehicles in Section 3-806 of this Code.
Permanent license plates for fire chief vehicles owned by a
municipal fire department or fire protection district shall be
