The bureau shall adopt rules and regulations which provide a means for any individual, his authorized representative, or his attorney if he is physically incapable of appearing at the bureau, to view, obtain a certified copy, make notes, and administratively challenge the accuracy and contents of his personal criminal history information record and to seek corrections. The bureau may levy a reasonable fee of not less than ten dollars for this purpose, which fees shall be collected by the bureau, paid into the state treasury, and appropriated to the bureau, all in accordance with the provisions of R.S. 15:584, and shall be used by the bureau to supplement normal operating expenses and to expand the services which the bureau is required to furnish under the provisions of this Chapter.
