    (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2023)
    Sec. 60. Issuance of license; renewal.
    (a) The State Fire Marshal shall, upon the applicant's satisfactory completion of the requirements authorized under this Act and upon receipt of the requisite fees, issue the appropriate license and wallet card showing the name and business location of the licensee, the dates of issuance and expiration, and shall contain a photograph of the licensee provided to the State Fire Marshal. An applicant who is 21 years of age or older seeking a religious exemption to the photograph required by this subsection shall furnish with his or her application an approved copy of United States Department of the Treasury Internal Revenue Service Form 4029. Regardless of age, an applicant seeking a religious exemption to this photograph requirement shall submit fingerprints in a form and manner prescribed by the State Fire Marshal with his or her application in lieu of a photograph.
    (b) Any license valid on December 31, 2010 under the Fire Equipment Distributor and Employee Regulation Act of 2000 shall be a valid license under this Act and expires when the valid license issued under the Fire Equipment Distributor and Employee Regulation Act of 2000 was scheduled to expire.
    (c) Each licensee may apply for renewal of his license upon payment of fees, as set forth in this Act. The expiration date and renewal period for each license issued under this Act shall be set by rule. Failure to renew within 60 days of the expiration date shall lapse the license. A lapsed license may not be reinstated until a written application is filed, the renewal fee is paid, and a $50 reinstatement fee is paid. Renewal and reinstatement fees shall be waived for persons who did not renew while on active duty in the military and who file for renewal or restoration within one year after discharge from such service. A lapsed license may not be reinstated after 5 years have elapsed, except upon passing an examination to determine fitness to have the license restored and by paying the required fees.
    (d) As a condition of renewal of a license, the State Fire Marshal may require the licensee to report information pertaining to his practice which the State Fire Marshal determines to be in the interest of public safety.
    (e) All fees paid under this Act are non-refundable.
