SB 267 (2023)

Require DES review of "cumulative impacts analysis"


Requires the Department of Environmental Services to make rules for the permitting and operation of advanced recycling facilities. These rules must address air pollution, the discharge of liquid waste, and so on.

The Senate completely rewrote the bill. The amended bill requires the Department of Environmental Services to "review existing air, water, and waste statutes and rules to determine if rules or legislation, including a schedule and cost estimates, relative to 'cumulative impacts analysis' should be proposed.  'Cumulative impacts analysis' means the combined impacts on public health and the environment caused by a proposed facility in combination with pollution from other, existing sources within a geographic area."
