Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Assembly convened:

Section 29-130 of the general statutes is repealed and the following is substituted in lieu thereof:

Said commissioner shall prescribe a form of application to be signed by each applicant and may require such information respecting the business in which the applicant proposes to engage as he finds necessary to safeguard the public from all forms of lascivious conduct, immoral practices, vice or violations of the law. Said commissioner or any [state policeman] EMPLOYEE OF THE DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY AUTHORIZED BY HIM FOR SAID PURPOSE may enter into any place so licensed or upon the premises where such business is being conducted, for the purpose of observing the conduct of the same. Said commissioner shall issue to each applicant so licensed a certificate to be designated "amusement park license", and each certificate shall state the name of the applicant, the location of the place where such amusement, entertainment, diversion or recreation may be conducted and the hours each day during which the same may be conducted. Each certificate shall be displayed conspicuously for public view by the licensee at the place where the business so licensed is conducted. Any such license may be suspended or revoked by said commissioner whenever it appears that any of the conditions required to be stated in such license have been violated. Such applications and license certificates shall be printed at the expense of the state. The annual license fee shall be thirty-five dollars to be paid by the applicant to the Commissioner of Public Safety with each application for such license. Such licenses shall not be transferable and, if any licensee voluntarily discontinues operations thereunder, all rights secured thereby shall terminate. On and after January 1, 1986, the license year shall be from January first until December thirty-first following, inclusive. Each such license shall be for a period of one license year.
