  1  1    Section 1.  Section 328.21, Code 1997, is amended to read
  1  2 as follows:
  1  3    328.21  AIRCRAFT REGISTRATION FEES.
  1  4    There A biennial registration fee for each such aircraft
  1  5 shall be paid to the department at the time of such
  1  6 registration an annual registration fee for each such
  1  7 aircraft, to be computed as follows:
  1  8    1.  Unless otherwise provided in this section, for the
  1  9 first registration, a sum equal to one and one-half percent of
  1 10 the manufacturer's list price of the aircraft the registration
  1 11 fee is twenty dollars.
  1 12    2.  The second year's registration fee is seventy-five
  1 13 percent of the rate fixed for the first registration; the
  1 14 third year's fee is fifty percent; and the fourth and
  1 15 subsequent year's fee is twenty-five percent; however, an
  1 16 aircraft shall not be registered for a fee of less than
  1 17 thirty-five dollars.
  1 18    3. 2.  The registration fee for an aircraft operated in
  1 19 scheduled interstate airline operation, owned by an Iowa
  1 20 person and operated part-time within this state shall be a fee
  1 21 of one hundred dollars.  The application for registration
  1 22 shall be supported by such records as the department shall
  1 23 prescribe.
  1 24    4.  Should the department find and determine that no
  1 25 established manufacturer's list price exists for any such
  1 26 aircraft the department is hereby authorized and empowered to
  1 27 determine and fix the fair value of such aircraft which fair
  1 28 value shall be used in lieu of a manufacturers' list price in
  1 29 computing the registration fee for each such aircraft as
  1 30 otherwise provided by this section.
  1 31    When the fee as so computed results in a fractional part of
  1 32 a dollar, it shall be computed to the nearest dollar.
  1 33    5. 3.  An aircraft thirty years old or older, which is used
  1 34 exclusively for noncommercial purposes, shall be registered as
  1 35 an antique aircraft for a fee of thirty-five dollars.
  2  1    6. 4.  An aircraft, unless exempt under section 328.35,
  2  2 which is damaged, is not airworthy, and is not in flying
  2  3 condition is not subject to registration fees if the owner of
  2  4 the aircraft submits information required by the department.
  2  5 Upon receipt of that information, the department shall issue a
  2  6 certificate which states that the registration fee has not
  2  7 been paid and that the aircraft shall not use the airports or
  2  8 the air space overlying the state until the fee has been paid.
  2  9    7. 5.  The registration fee for a helicopter used
  2 10 exclusively as an air ambulance is one thousand dollars.
  2 11    8. 6.  An aircraft owned and operated by an aviation
  2 12 business located at a publicly owned, public use airport and
  2 13 providing, under agreement with the governing body of the
  2 14 airport, a specified minimum level of aviation services to the
  2 15 general public, shall be registered for a fee of one hundred
  2 16 dollars.
  2 17    Sec. 2.  Sections 328.22 and 328.24, Code 1997, are
  2 18 repealed.  
  2 19                           EXPLANATION
  2 20    This bill sets the fee for registering certain aircraft in
  2 21 Iowa at $20 every two years.  Currently, the registration fee
  2 22 is calculated by a formula based on an initial registration
  2 23 fee of 1.5 percent of the original list price of the aircraft
  2 24 and decreasing to 25 percent of the first year's registration
  2 25 fee or $35, whichever is higher.  The bill also makes
  2 26 coordinating repeals of sections 328.22 and 328.24.
