"The State Fire Marshall may charge no fee for any permits or inspections of any school, whether it be public or private."

(This amendment provides additional general fund support to the Department of Fire Programs to eliminate the inspection fees the State Fire Marshall has been permitted to charge schools, whether public or private, for the administration and enforcement of the Fire Prevention Code. In localities that choose not to enforce any of the Fire Prevention Code or only select provisions of the Fire Prevention Code, the State Fire Marshall is authorized to enforce either the entire Fire Prevention Code or those portions the locality has decided it will not enforce. The Code of Virginia permits the State Fire Marshall to charge a fee to recover the costs of administering and enforcing the Fire Prevention Code in those localities.)
