(a) Upon failure or refusal of a seller of drycleaning solvent, an owner or operator of a drycleaning facility, an in-state wholesale distribution facility, or the current or prior owner or operator of an abandoned drycleaning facility, subject to payment by regulation, to pay a registration fee or solvent surcharge, lawfully levied within a reasonable time allowed by the commissioner, the commissioner may proceed in the court of competent jurisdiction to obtain judgment and seek execution of such judgment.
(b) Any person who fails or refuses to pay a lawfully levied registration fee or solvent surcharge or any part of that registration fee or solvent surcharge by its due date shall be assessed a penalty of up to fifty dollars ($50.00) for each day that passes after the fee or surcharge is due and before such fee or surcharge is paid. Nothing in this section shall be construed as requiring the issuance of a commissioner's order for the payment of a registration fee or a late payment penalty.
(c) No owner or operator shall receive a registration certificate as required under § 68-217-106(a) until all fees, surcharges and penalties required by this chapter are paid in full.
