The fees are not subject to the rulemaking provisions of chapter 14 and section 14.386 does not apply.
Fees collected under subdivision 1 shall be credited to the special revenue fund and are annually appropriated to the commissioner to recoup the costs of developing, operating, and maintaining facilities necessary for the specified uses in subdivision 1 or to prevent or mitigate resource impacts of those uses.
