20. a. The provisions of section 6, section 7, section 14, sections 16 through 19, inclusive, and sections 29 through 31, inclusive, of P.L.2005, c.219 (C.26:2C-8.31, C.26:2C-8.32, C.26:2C-8.39, C.26:2C-8.41 through C.26:2C-8.44, and C.26:2C-8.54 through C.26:2C-8.56) affecting the reimbursement of owners of regulated vehicles or regulated equipment for the costs associated with the purchase and installation of retrofit devices, to the contrary notwithstanding, the Department of Environmental Protection may develop an alternative approach for reimbursement of these costs to the owners if the department determines that an alternative approach is feasible, cost-effective, and efficient. The alternative approach may include, but shall not be limited to, directly reimbursing the entity performing the actual installation of the retrofit device in lieu of reimbursing the owner of the regulated vehicle or regulated equipment. If the department determines that an alternative approach is feasible, cost-effective, and efficient and chooses to implement the alternative approach, the department shall establish and implement the alternative approach pursuant to rules and regulations adopted pursuant to the "Administrative Procedure Act," P.L.1968, c.410 (C.52:14B-1 et seq.). No such rule or regulation may modify any procedure performed by, or any responsibility or requirement imposed on, the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission, its employees, or any persons licensed or contracted by the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission, unless the rule or regulation is adopted jointly by the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission and the Department of Environmental Protection pursuant to the "Administrative Procedure Act," P.L.1968, c.410 (C.52:14B-1 et seq.).

b. No provision of subsection a. of this section or any other rule or regulation adopted pursuant thereto, shall be construed to supersede or modify, the provisions of section 3, section 4, subsection a. or subsections d. through f., inclusive, of section 6, subsections a. through c. or subsections e. through f., inclusive, of section 7, sections 8 through 13, inclusive, subsection d. or e. of section 19, section 21, section 26, section 27, section 28, subsection a. of section 29, or subsection b. of section 30 of P.L.2005, c.219 (C.26:2C-8.28, C.26:2C-8.29, C.26:2C-8.31, C.26:2C-8.32, C.26:2C-8.33 through C.26:2C-8.38, C.26:2C-8.44, C.26:2C-8.46, C.26:2C-8.51, C.26:2C-8.52, C.26:2C-8.53, C.26:2C-8.54, or C.26:2C-8.55).

c. No entity performing the actual installation of a retrofit device who is reimbursed for the costs associated with the purchase and installation of retrofit devices pursuant to rules and regulations adopted pursuant to subsection a. of this section may impose any charge on any owner of a regulated vehicle or piece of regulated equipment for any cost associated with the purchase and installation of retrofit devices required pursuant to P.L.2005, c.219 (C.26:2C-8.26 et al.). No State agency, department, or political subdivision thereof may impose any charge on any owner of a regulated vehicle or piece of regulated equipment for any cost associated with the purchase and installation of retrofit devices required pursuant to P.L.2005, c.219 (C.26:2C-8.26 et al.) if entities performing the actual installation of a retrofit device are reimbursed for the costs pursuant to rules and regulations adopted pursuant to subsection a. of this section.
