The criminal identification bureau may charge, and any
requester shall pay a user charge of ten dollars for each request
for information made by a requester to the central abuse registry.
In order to expedite requests by requesters, the criminal
identification bureau may establish a procedure permitting service
providers or qualified entities as defined in section one of this
article to deposit funds with the bureau in anticipation of
requests. Fees pursuant to this section shall be paid into a
special account in the State Treasury to be expended for registry
purposes and criminal record keeping: Provided, That for and after
the fiscal year ending the thirtieth day of June, one thousand nine
hundred ninety-eight, all expenditures shall be made in accordance
with appropriation by the Legislature. Amounts collected which are
found from time to time to exceed the funds needed for Central
Abuse Registry and criminal record keeping purposes may be
transferred to other accounts or funds and redesignated for other
purposes by appropriation of the Legislature. For purposes of this
section, the term "criminal record keeping" means the compiling of
fingerprints, photographs, criminal disposition reports, uniform
crime report statistics and other relevant data regarding the
arrest, conviction, incarceration and post-conviction status of
criminal violators and sex offenders. "Criminal record keeping"
does not include the creation of any data.
