AS 37.10.050. Charges By State Agencies; Collection, Accounting, and Deposit of State Money.

(a) A state agency may not charge a fee for the provision of state services unless the fee (1) is set or otherwise authorized by statute; and (2) where a regulation is necessary, is set by or provided for in a regulation that meets the standards of AS 44.62.020 and 44.62.030. Unless specifically exempted by statute, a state agency authorized to collect or receive fees, licenses, taxes, or other money belonging to the state shall account for and remit the receipts, less fees to which the collector is entitled by statute or regulation, to the Department of Revenue at least once each month. The commissioner of administration shall separately account under AS 37.05.142 for receipts deposited under this subsection. A fee or other charge that is set by regulation may not exceed the estimated actual costs of the state agency in administering the activity or providing the service unless otherwise provided by the statute under which the regulation is adopted; however, this limitation does not apply to sale or lease of property by a state agency, fees charged by a resource agency for a designated regulatory service as defined in AS 37.10.058 , or fees adopted by the Department of Natural Resources under AS 44.37.025 or 44.37.027.

(b) Money collected for the state shall be deposited by the collector in the nearest bank to the account of the Department of Revenue when the Department of Revenue directs this to be done.

(c) Except as provided in AS 37.10.052 (a), each state agency shall annually review fees collected by the agency. By October 1, each state agency shall submit a report to the office of management and budget regarding existing fee levels set by the agency by regulation and adjustments made to fee levels by the agency during the previous fiscal year, and recommended adjustments in fees set by statute that the agency collects. Each year by December 15, the office of management and budget shall submit a report to the Legislative Budget and Audit Committee summarizing the reports and recommendations and the extent to which the fee adjustments have been incorporated in the governor's budget. Within five days after the convening of each regular session of the legislature, the committee shall prepare a report on the status of fee regulations and making recommendations for changes in regulations or statutes as appropriate. The committee shall notify the legislature that the report is available.
