     4  dollars as against the holder of any retail permit  issued  pursuant  to
     5  sections  ninety-five,  ninety-seven,  ninety-eight,  ninety-nine-d, and

    49  respects  be  governed  by  that chapter and may be enforced in the same
    50  manner and with the same effect as that provided by law  in  respect  to

    52  judgment entered pursuant to this subdivision shall remain in full force
    53  and effect for eight years notwithstanding any other provision of law.
