(b)  A notice of violation may be issued by the department when an amusement ride is found to be out of compliance with the provisions of this act, or any rules or regulations adopted pursuant thereto. The notice of violation may include an order to cease and desist operation of the specific amusement ride until all violations are satisfactorily corrected.

(c) Within 10 business days after a notice of violation has been issued, the person issued such notice may file a written request with the department for an informal conference regarding the notice.

Upon receipt of each such remittance, the state treasurer shall deposit the entire amount in the state treasury to the credit of the amusement ride safety fund.
