Amend the bill, as and if amended, SECTION 1, by striking Section 56-1-395(A) and inserting:

(A) The Department of Motor Vehicles shall establish a driver's license reinstatement fee payment program. A person who is a South Carolina resident, is eighteen years of age or older, and has had his driver's license suspended may apply to the Department of Motor Vehicles to obtain a license valid for no more than six twelve months to allow time for payment of reinstatement fees. If the person has served all of his suspensions, has met all other conditions for reinstatement, and owes three two hundred dollars or more of South Carolina reinstatement fees only for suspensions that are listed in subsection (E), the Department of Motor Vehicles may issue a six-month twelve-month license upon payment of a thirty-five forty dollar administrative fee and payment of fifteen ten percent of the reinstatement fees owed. Of the forty dollar administrative fee, the department may retain five dollars to cover the cost of operating the program. The remaining money must be placed into the State Highway Fund established in Section 57-11-20.
