Page 245, after line 47, insert:
"D.  The Commissioner of Health is authorized to develop, in consultation with the regulated entities, an annual permit renewal fee, not to exceed $35 per year, to be collected from all establishments that are subject to inspection by the Department of Health pursuant to §35.1-14, Code of Virginia; however, any such establishment that is subject to any health permit fee, application fee, inspection fee, risk assessment fee or similar fee imposed by any locality shall be subject to this annual permit fee only to the extent that the annual permit renewal fee and the locally-imposed fee, when combined, does not exceed $35.  This fee structure shall be subject to the approval of the Secretary of Health and Human Resources."

(This amendment assesses an annual permit renewal fee for food service establishments inspected by the Department of Health, as an alternative to a proposed re-inspection fee.)
