A private provider may collect and retain a convenience fee for the services provided in the expedited registration program.


Intentionally left blank —Ed.


The department may accept financial assistance from a private party to implement the expedited registration program if the financial assistance is directly related to the expedited registration program and is not conditional upon an act or circumstance that conflicts with state law.


The department shall transfer any money accepted under this subsection (3) to the state treasurer, who shall credit it to the Colorado DRIVES vehicle services account created in section 42-1-211 (2).


The department shall use any money accepted under this subsection (3) to implement this section.

Registers commercial vehicles and collects and remits taxes and fees in compliance with state law.


To implement this section, the department may promulgate rules in addition to the rules required under subsection (2)(a) of this section and may enter into contracts with private providers.
