Whenever, for any reason, the commission shall cancel the reciprocity of any carrier
under any reciprocal agreement, then such carrier may obtain a temporary motor vehicle
permit from the commission for each vehicle owned and operated which would otherwise
be operated under the benefits of such reciprocal agreement. Such permits shall be obtained by making application therefor to the commission,
and they shall be issued for the period of time for which the carrier's reciprocity
has been cancelled. If, at the end of such period, the carrier is not then entitled to the benefits
of the reciprocal agreements, no additional or renewal permit shall be issued to him. The carrier shall pay a fee for each of such permits equal to the proportionate
part of the annual privilege license tax provided in Article 1 of Chapter 19 of this
title, Mississippi Code of 1972, plus an additional ten percent (10%) of the proportionate
part of such tax. All fees so paid shall be for the privilege of using the highways of this state
for the length of time during which the carrier's reciprocity is cancelled in lieu
of the annual privilege license required under the provisions of Article 1 of Chapter
19 of this title, and all such fees shall be paid into the same fund and distributed
in the same manner provided in Article 1 of Chapter 19 of this title. The carrier may, instead of obtaining the permits specified in this section, operate
his vehicles by obtaining trip permits as specified in Article 1 of Chapter 19 of
