 Section 5164 is added to the Vehicle Code, to read:

 (a) The Department of Public Health shall apply to the department to sponsor a diabetes awareness, education, and research license plate program. The department shall issue specialized license plates for that program if the Department of Public Health satisfies the requirements of Section 5156.
(b) License plates issued pursuant to this section shall display the message “Cure Diabetes” under the numerical series. The Department of Public Health may also accept and use donated artwork from California artists for the license plate.
(c) The fees specified in Section 5157 shall be imposed for the issuance, renewal, or transfer of specialized license plates authorized by this section. Notwithstanding subdivision (c) of Section 5157, after deducting its administrative costs, the department shall deposit the revenue derived from the additional fees into the Diabetes Awareness Fund, which is hereby established in the State Treasury. Upon appropriation by the Legislature, the moneys in that fund shall be allocated to the Department of Public Health to fund projects and programs related to diabetes awareness and prevention in California’s diverse communities.
