  • Appropriation: The provision of funds, through an annual appropriations act or a permanent law, for federal agencies to make payments out of the Treasury for specified purposes. The formal federal spending process consists of two sequential steps: authorization
     The Agency may establish by rule a registration fee for operators of laser machines required to register under this Act. The Agency may by rule exempt public institutions from the registration fee requirement. Registration fees assessed shall be due and payable within 60 days after the date of billing. If, after 60 days, the registration fee is not paid, the Agency may issue an order directing the operator of the installation to cease use of the laser machines for which the fee is outstanding or take other appropriate enforcement action as provided in Section 36 of the Radiation Protection Act of 1990. An order issued by the Agency shall afford the operator a right to a hearing before the Agency. A written request for a hearing must be served on the Agency within 10 days of notice of the order. If the operator fails to file a timely request for a hearing with the Agency, the operator shall be deemed to have waived his or her right to a hearing. All moneys received by the Agency under this Act shall be deposited into the Radiation Protection Fund and are not refundable. Pursuant to appropriation, moneys deposited into the Fund may be used by the Agency to administer and enforce this Act.
