Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Environmental Protection Act. Provides that for an underground storage tank release reported on or after the effective date of the amendatory Act, an owner or operator may access the Underground Storage Tank Fund for costs associated with an Environmental Protection Agency approved plan, and the Agency shall approve the payment of costs associated with corrective action without the application of a deductible, except a $5,000 deductible shall apply to an owner or operator of an underground storage tank that is not registered under the Gasoline Storage Act. Makes changes, applicable to a release reported on or after the effective date, to provisions concerning payments from the Underground Storage Tank Fund for an application for payment from the Fund for an approved plan and budget for a tank that is registered under the Gasoline Storage Act. Provides that if a full payment is not made within specified periods for the applications for these registered tanks, then the Fund must pay the owner or operator 2% interest per month on any unpaid amount until the owner or operator is fully paid. Provides that if the balance in the Underground Storage Tank Fund falls below $10,000,000 for a period of 6 months, then the 2% percent monthly interest payments shall be suspended until the Fund balance is above $10,000,000.
