2007 House Bill 4222: Levy landfill tipping tax
  1. Introduced by Rep. Terry Brown (D) on February 7, 2007, to authorize the distribution formula for the money collected under the $7.50 per ton landfill tipping fee (tax) proposed by House Bill 4221. Most of the money would be distributed to local governments, mostly allocated on a per-capita basis, with some exceptions. Those municipalities that provide curbside recycling programs would get more money.
    • Referred to the House Great Lakes and Environment Committee on February 7, 2007.
      • Reported in the House on October 17, 2007, with the recommendation that the substitute (H-3) be adopted and that the bill then pass.
