2021 Senate Bill 429: Establish sand and gravel mining regulatory regime, fees
Introduced by Sen. Jim Ananich (D) on May 11, 2021
To impose a state permit mandate on sand and gravel mining, which is done locally in many places as part of ongoing road repair and reconstruction projects. This would preempt locally-imposed restrictions and permit mandates (with exceptions), but also impose a $5,000 permit application fee and detailed state regulatory regime, restrictions and requirements similar to ones on mineral mining operations. This would come with criminal penalties including a year in prison and $500,000 fine.   Official Text and Analysis.
Referred to the Senate Transportation and Infrastructure Committee on May 11, 2021
