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.
