under the Freedom of Information Act and is either compiled in published form
or maintained on a computer processible medium shall be furnished upon the
written request of any applicant and the payment of a reasonable information
services fee established by the Director, sufficient to cover the total cost to
the Division of compiling, processing, maintaining, and generating the
information. The information may be furnished by means of published copy or on
a computer processed or computer processible medium.
No fee may be charged to any person for information that the Division is
required by law to furnish to that person.

purposes set forth in Section 1A-107 of this Code shall be transferred to the
Public Pension Regulation Fund.

funds from the General Revenue Fund to the Department for the purpose of
administering or enforcing this Code.
