Description

Any law is only as strong as the ability to enforce it. Previously, the Environment Department had little recourse against polluters who violated the Air Quality Act and failed to abide by compliance orders issued by the Department. HB 23 authorized the Environment Department to assess civil penalties of up to $25,000 per day for non-compliance, and pursue suspension or revocation of the permit for failure to pay the penalties or comply with the order.

Outcome

Unfortunately, HB 23 was weakened by an amendment on the Senate Floor, but it passed both chambers and was signed by the Governor.
