Sec. YYYY-1. 29-A MRSA §525, sub-§10,  as amended by PL 2007, c. 438, §2, is further amended to read:

10. Suspension.   If a person fails to file a fuel tax report or to pay any taxes, interest, penalties or audit assessment as required pursuant to Title 36, chapter 459 or any rule adopted pursuant to this section, the Secretary of State shall suspend the person's fuel tax license, all fuel decals issued to the person and that person's privilege to operate as a motor carrier. In order to be reinstated, the person must file all delinquent tax returns and pay all assessments, interest and penalties. In addition, the person must pay a $35 $50 reinstatement fee pursuant to section 2486, subsection 1.

Sec. YYYY-2. 29-A MRSA §2486, sub-§1,  as amended by PL 2007, c. 531, §4 and affected by §10, is further amended to read:

1. Reinstatement fee for suspensions other than for OUI or failure to submit to a test.   Before a suspension for any reason other than OUI or failure to submit to a test is terminated and a license or certificate reinstated, a fee of $35 $50, in addition to the regular license fee, must be paid to the Secretary of State.

Sec. YYYY-3. 29-A MRSA §2486, sub-§2,  as enacted by PL 1993, c. 683, Pt. A, §2 and affected by Pt. B, §5, is amended to read:

2. Allocation of fee.   A reinstatement fee paid for a court-ordered suspension under section 2605 must be deposited equally between the Highway Fund and the General Fund. Except for suspensions under section 2605, 85% of the reinstatement fee paid pursuant to subsection 1 accrues to the Highway Fund and 15% accrues to the General Fund.

Sec. YYYY-4. 29-A MRSA §2605, sub-§4,  as amended by PL 2001, c. 463, §4 and affected by §7, is further amended to read:

4. Rescission of suspension.   On appearances or payment of the fine, whichever was the basis for the suspension, and on the condition of payment of a $35 $50 reinstatement fee pursuant to section 2486, subsection 1 to the Secretary of State, the clerk of the court in which the suspension was ordered shall rescind the suspension and notify the Secretary of State who, upon receipt of the $35 $50 reinstatement fee, shall delete any record of the suspension from that person's driving record.

Sec. YYYY-5. 29-A MRSA §2608, 3rd ¶,  as amended by PL 2001, c. 463, §5 and affected by §7, is further amended to read:

The clerk shall immediately notify that person of the suspension by regular mail or personal service. The suspension has the same force and effect as a suspension by the Secretary of State. The suspension remains in effect until the person answers or appears, either in person or by counsel, or pays the fine. On answer, appearance or payment of the fine, whichever was the basis for the suspension, and on condition of payment of a $35 $50 reinstatement fee pursuant to section 2486, subsection 1 to the Secretary of State, the clerk of the court in which the suspension was ordered shall rescind the suspension and notify the Secretary of State who, upon receipt of the $35 $50 reinstatement fee pursuant to section 2486, subsection 1, shall delete any record of the suspension from that person's driving record.
