[II.  There is hereby established the non-TANF financial assistance program fund.  The fund shall contain all private funds received by the department to be used to carry out the provisions of this section.  The fund shall be nonlapsing and shall be continually appropriated to the commissioner for the purposes of this section.]

II.  [Such money as is received by the commissioner from a client of the program, or a certified substance abuse treatment facility, or on his behalf, for sale of services or things, or for any other reason, shall be placed in a special fund to be used for the purposes of this chapter alone.  Said funds shall be in addition to the appropriations granted the program.

III.  [Repealed.]

IV.]  As a condition of any certification, training, or permit required in connection with the treatment and rehabilitation of any of his or her clients, or clients of a certified substance abuse treatment facility, the commissioner may require payment of a fee to cover the reasonable costs of acting upon the application for the certification, permit, or training.  The commissioner shall establish a fee schedule and provide for the collection of the fees.  [Funds collected under this paragraph shall be placed in a non-lapsing revolving account and shall be used for the purposes of this chapter only.]
