No person shall be engaged: (1) as a manufacturer of articles of bedding for sale at wholesale; (2) as a manufacturer of articles of bedding for sale at retail; (3) as a supply dealer; (4) as a repairer-renovator; or (5) as a retailer of second-hand articles of bedding, unless he or she has obtained the appropriate numbered license therefor from the director, who is hereby empowered to issue the license. Application for the license shall be made on forms provided by the director and shall contain such information as the director may deem material and necessary. Based on the information furnished in the application and on any investigation deemed necessary by the director, the applicant's classification shall be determined. Each license issued by the director pursuant to this section shall be conspicuously posted in the establishment of the person to whom issued. The director may withhold the issuance of a license to any person who shall make any false statement in the application for a license under this chapter. The director shall promulgate rules and regulations mandating the term of license for each category of license issued pursuant to this chapter; however, no license shall remain in force for a period in excess of three (3) years. The fee for the initial issuance or renewal of a license shall be determined by multiplying the per annum fee by the number of years in the term of the license. The entire fee must be paid in full for the total number of years of license prior to the issuance of the license.
