  (1)  Submit to the proper federal authorities, amend and carry out a state plan to qualify as a base state and to participate in the UCR plan and administer the UCR agreement, and take other necessary actions as the designated representative of the state of Missouri so that:

  (6)  Enter into agreements with any agencies or officers of the United States, or of any state that participates or intends to enter into the UCR agreement; and

  (7)  Delegate any or all of the powers, duties, and functions of the commission under this section to any agent or contractor.

  5.  After the commission has entered into the UCR plan on behalf of this state, the requirements in the UCR agreement shall take precedence over any conflicting requirements under chapter 622 or this chapter.

  6.  Notwithstanding any other provisions of law to the contrary, every motor carrier, motor private carrier, broker, freight forwarder, and leasing company that has its principal place of business within this state, and every such person who has designated this state as the person's base state under the provisions of the UCR Act, shall timely complete and file with the state highways and transportation commission all the forms required by the UCR agreement and the UCR implementing regulations, and shall pay the required UCR registration fees to the commission.

  7.  All powers of the commission under section 226.008 are hereby made applicable to the enforcement of this section with reference to any person subject to any provision of this section.  The chief counsel shall not be required to exhaust any administrative remedies before commencing any enforcement actions under this section.  The provisions of chapter 622 shall apply to and govern the practice and procedures before the courts in those actions.

  8.  Except as required by the UCR Act, the UCR agreement, or the UCR implementing regulations, the provisions of this section and the rules adopted by the commission under this section shall not be construed as exempting any motor carrier, or any person controlled by a motor carrier, from any of the requirements of chapter 622, or this chapter, relating to the transportation of passengers or property in intrastate commerce.

  9.  Notwithstanding any other provision of this section to the contrary, Missouri elects to not apply the provisions of the UCR Act, the UCR agreement, and the UCR implementing regulations to motor carriers and motor private carriers that operate solely in intrastate commerce transporting farm or dairy products, including livestock, from a farm, or property from farm to farm, or stocker and feeder livestock from farm to farm, or from market to farm.
