    Page 16, line 26, reset in roman "on".
    Page 16, line 27, reset in roman "public property".
    Page 16, between lines 32 and 33, begin a new paragraph and insert:
    " (b) A vehicle purchased after December 31, 2003, may not be operated unless registered as set forth in section 9 of this chapter.".
    Page 16, line 40, delete "June 30," and insert " December 31,".
    Page 17, between lines 14 and 15, begin a new paragraph and insert:
SOURCE: IC 14-16-1-14; (03)MO040504.37. -->     "SECTION 37. IC 14-16-1-14 IS AMENDED TO READ AS FOLLOWS [EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2003]: Sec. 14. (a) The owner of a vehicle required to be registered under this chapter shall notify the department within fifteen (15) days if any of the following conditions exist:
        (1) The vehicle is destroyed or abandoned.
        (2) The vehicle is sold or an interest in the vehicle is transferred wholly or in part to another person.
        (3) The owner's address no longer conforms to the address appearing on the certificate of registration.
    (b) The notice must consist of a surrender of the certificate of registration on which the proper information shall be noted on a place to be provided.
    (c) If the surrender of the certificate is required because the vehicle

is destroyed or abandoned, the department shall cancel the certificate and enter that fact in the records. The number then may be reassigned.
    (d) If the surrender is required because of a change of address on the part of the owner, the department shall record the new address. Upon payment of a fee of one dollar ($1), a certificate of registration bearing the new information shall be returned to the owner.
    (e) The transferee of a vehicle registered under this chapter shall, within fifteen (15) days after acquiring the vehicle, make application to the department for transfer to the transferee of the certificate of registration issued to the vehicle. The transferee shall provide the transferee's name and address and the number of the vehicle and pay to the department a fee of one dollar ($1). Upon receipt of the application and fee, the department shall transfer the certificate of registration issued for the vehicle to the new owner. Unless the application is made and the fee paid within fifteen (15) days, the vehicle is considered to be without a certificate of registration and a person may not operate the vehicle until a certificate is issued.".
    Renumber all SECTIONS consecutively.
