Provides that the convicted person shall make this restitution in addition to any other fine or penalty required by law. Provides that in addition to any other penalties and liabilities, a person who is convicted of violating any Section of the Act, whose violation proximately caused any incident resulting in an appropriate emergency response, shall be assessed a fine of $2,500, or $5,000 if the person has been previously convicted of a violation of the Act, payable to the circuit clerk, who shall distribute the money to the law enforcement agency responsible for the mitigation of the incident.
