Short description: 
TOXIC AIR CONTAMINANTS-FEE                                                 

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Environmental  Protection  Act  to  impose  a  fee  on      
   facilities  that  emit  toxic  air  pollutants of 5 cents per pound of      
   toxic  air  pollutants  emitted.  Provides  that  the  fees  shall  be      
   deposited into the Toxic Air Pollution Reduction Fund. Moneys  in  the      
   Fund  shall  be  used  for  the  Air  Pollution  Control Division, the      
   Hazardous Waste Research and Information Center, activities under  the      
   Illinois  Health  and Hazardous Substances Registry Act, grants to the      
   Illinois Cancer Society, and costs  of  collecting  the  fee.  Imposes      
   penalties  for  violations. Amends the State Finance Act to create the      
   Toxic Air Pollution Reduction Fund. Effective immediately.                  
          FISCAL NOTE (EPA)                                                    
          HB 2166 would generate $3.15 million to be deposited into the        
          Toxic Air Pollution Reduction Fund. However, this emissions          
          level is decreasing and by the year 2000 is expected to be re-       
          duced to 30 to 35 million pounds, generating approximately $1.5      
          million to be deposited into the Fund.                               
          FISCAL NOTE (Dept. Revenue)                                          
          HB2166 does not affect the Department of Revenue.
