Be it enacted by the People of the State of Maine as follows:

Sec. 1. 7 MRSA §2231, sub-§4,  as enacted by PL 2009, c. 320, §1, is amended to read:

4. License issued.   Upon review and approval of an application, the commissioner shall notify the applicant and request that the application fee determined under subsection 7 be submitted. Upon receipt of the appropriate fee and in accordance with subsection 8, the commissioner shall issue a license, which is valid for a period of one year and only for the site or sites specified in the license.

Sec. 2. 7 MRSA §2231, sub-§8,  as enacted by PL 2009, c. 320, §1, is repealed.
