2010 Senate Bill 1348: Streamline hazardous material spill regulatory regime

Public Act 230 of 2010

Introduced by Sen. John Gleason (D) on May 25, 2010 To streamline the regulations and procedures for cleanups of hazardous materials that exist on a property or are spilled. Rather than requiring the Department of Natural Resources and Environment to promulgate generic rules for all cleanups, it would instead determine the adequacy of a given cleanup on a case-by-case basis. In conformance with the project of Senate Bills 1345 to 1349, this bill would remove references to those generic rules in the provision that authorizes criminal penalties and civil fines of up to $10,000 per day.   Official Text and Analysis.
