  3.  The commission may, by rule, establish an alternative means to collect the assessment if another means is found to be more efficient and effective.  The commission may by rule establish a late payment charge and rate of interest to be imposed on any person who fails to remit any amount due under this chapter.

  4.  The commission shall set fees for permits, licenses, and certificates required by this chapter.  Fees shall be determined by the commission to provide sufficient funds for the operation of the commission and its programs and shall be set by rule promulgated in accordance with the provisions of section 323.020.  The commission may alter the fee schedule once every two years.  Any funds collected under this section shall be deposited in the propane inspection fund.
