    All applications for a license, title, or permit, upon reprinting, shall contain the following authorization statement: "My signature above authorizes the Department of Professional Regulation to reduce the amount of this check if the amount submitted is not correct. I understand this will be done only if the amount submitted is greater than the required fee hereunder, but in no event shall the reduction be made in an amount greater than $50."
