Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Coal Tar Sealant Disclosure Act. Requires specified persons and entities, public schools and public school districts, and State agencies to disclose the use of a coal tar-based sealant or high polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon sealant product. Provides requirements for disclosures made under the Act. Requires persons or entities to provide information regarding alternative sealant upon request and public schools or public school districts and the State to seek an asphalt-based sealant when distributing any request for proposals. Requires public schools or public school districts and State agencies to determine whether specified benefits of alternative products outweigh the cost, and if so to use them. Provides that the Department of Public Health, in consultation with the State Board of Education, shall conduct outreach to public schools and public school districts regarding coal tar-based sealant and high polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon product. Provides that nothing in the Act applies to a construction project or sale in which coal tar-based sealant or high polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon sealant product is used for roofing application. Contains other provisions.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause with the provisions of the introduced bill with the following changes. Removes provisions regarding coal tar sealant disclosure requirements for contractors. Provides that on or before May 1, 2023 (rather than January 1, 2022): (1) the Department of Public Health and the State Board of Education shall post on their websites guidance on screening for coal tar-based sealant product or high polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon sealant product, requirements for a request for proposals, and requirements for disclosure; and (2) the Department shall adopt rules for the procedures and standards to be used in assessing acceptable levels of high polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon content of a pavement seal applied to any State agency property. Provides that provisions regarding coal tar-based sealant disclosure for State property do not apply to pavement engineering projects requiring the use of a coal tar-based sealant or high polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon sealant product for pavement engineering-related use on a highway structure conducted by or under the authority of the Department of Transportation. Provides that the Act is effective January 1, 2023.
