Introduced by Rep. Kate Segal D- on July 28, 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 House Bills 6358 to 6363, 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.
