    Sec. 100. Administrative civil fines. The State Fire Marshal is empowered to assess administrative civil fines against a licensee for violations of this Act or its rules. These fines shall not be greater than $1,000 for each offense. These fines shall be in addition to, or in lieu of, license suspensions and revocations. Rules to implement this Section shall be adopted by the State Fire Marshal within 6 months after the effective date of this Act.
    The hearing officer shall, upon determination that a violation of the Act or rules has occurred, determine the amount of these fines. Any fine assessed and not paid within 60 days after receiving notice of the fine from the State Fire Marshal may be submitted to the Attorney General's office for collection. Failure to pay a fine shall also be grounds for immediate suspension or revocation of a license issued under this Act.
