Description

SB206 would put a stranglehold on water quality regulations, preventing agencies from meeting their responsibilities to protect public health, safety, and welfare. The bill prohibits the state from imposing conditions on discharge permits under the Water Quality Act. The result may be that permits will be issued without the necessary conditions to protect human and environmental health. Alternately, permits will simply be denied because the agency can't tailor the approval to reflect site or project-specific conditions.

Outcome

After negotiations, the bill was amended in the House Energy and Natural Resources Committee to the point that CVNM withdrew our opposition, but the votes scored re?ect the original, anti-conservation version. PASSED both chambers and signed into law.
