(225 ILCS 120/35) (from Ch. 111, par. 8301-35)
    (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2023)
    Sec. 35. Fees; Illinois State Pharmacy Disciplinary Fund.
    (a) The Department shall provide by rule for a schedule of fees for the administration and enforcement of this Act, including but not limited to original licensure, renewal, and restoration. The fees shall be nonrefundable.
    (b) All fees collected under this Act shall be deposited into the Illinois State Pharmacy Disciplinary Fund and shall be appropriated to the Department for the ordinary and contingent expenses of the Department in the administration of this Act. Moneys in the Fund may be transferred to the Professions Indirect Cost Fund as authorized by Section 2105-300 of the Department of Professional Regulation Law (20 ILCS 2105/2105-300).
    The moneys deposited into the Illinois State Pharmacy Disciplinary Fund shall be invested to earn interest which shall accrue to the Fund.
    The Department shall present to the Board for its review and comment all appropriation requests from the Illinois State Pharmacy Disciplinary Fund. The Department shall give due consideration to any comments of the Board in making appropriation requests.
    (c) Any person who delivers a check or other payment to the Department that is returned to the Department unpaid by the financial institution upon which it is drawn shall pay to the Department, in addition to the amount already owed to the Department, a fine of $50. The fines imposed by this Section are in addition to any other discipline provided under this Act for unlicensed practice or practice on a nonrenewed license. The Department shall notify the person that payment of fees and fines shall be paid to the Department by certified check or money order within 30 calendar days of the notification. If, after the expiration of 30 days from the date of the notification, the person has failed to submit the necessary remittance, the Department shall automatically terminate the license or certificate or deny the application, without hearing. If, after termination or denial, the person seeks a license or certificate, he or she shall apply to the Department for restoration or issuance of the license or certificate and pay all fees and fines due to the Department. The Department may establish a fee for the processing of an application for restoration of a license or certificate to pay all expenses of processing this application. The Director may waive the fines due under this Section in individual cases where the Director finds that the fines would be unreasonable or unnecessarily burdensome.
    (d) The Department shall maintain a roster of the names and addresses of all registrants and of all persons whose licenses have been suspended or revoked. This roster shall be available upon written request and payment of the required fee.
    (e) A manufacturer of controlled substances or wholesale distributor of controlled substances that is licensed under this Act and owned and operated by the State is exempt from licensure, registration, renewal, and other fees required under this Act. Nothing in this subsection (e) shall be construed to prohibit the Department from imposing any fine or other penalty allowed under this Act.
