Each applicant must complete and sign an application form prescribed and published by the Commission and pay a license fee set by the Commission.  In addition to the license fee, the Commission shall charge the applicant a fee set by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and by the Iowa Department of Public Safety, Division of Criminal Investigation, to cover the cost associated with the background search and classification of fingerprints
