Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Environmental  Protection  Act  to  make  a  technical      
   change to a provision concerning the Solid Waste Management Fund.           
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
          Adds reference to:                                                   
          30 ILCS 105/5.480 new                                                
          415 ILCS 5/21                   from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 1021          
          415 ILCS 5/22.15a new                                                
        Amends the Environmental Protection Act  and  the  State  Finance      
   Act.    Provides  that the fee, tax, or surcharge imposed by a unit of      
   local government upon a solid waste disposal  facility  shall  not  be      
   utilized  for  the purchase of waste hauling equipment.  Provides that      
   the total fee, tax, or surcharge shall not  exceed  $.45  (instead  of      
   $.60) per cubic yard if more than 150,000 cubic yards of non-hazardous      
   solid  waste  is disposed of at the site, unless the owner or operator      
   weighs the quantity of the solid waste  received  with  a  device  for      
   which certification has been obtained, in which case the fee shall not      
   exceed  $.95  (instead  of $1.27) per ton.  Requires the Environmental      
   Protection Agency to assess and collect a  fee    from  the  owner  or      
   operator  of  a sanitary landfill permitted to dispose of solid waste,      
   to be deposited into the Local Waste  Reduction  and  Recycling  Fund.      
   Pursuant  to  appropriation,  requires  all  money  in  the Fund to be      
   distributed to units of  local  government  on  a  per  capita  basis.      
   Requires the unit of local government to prepare and distribute to the      
   Agency  a  report that details spending plans for the money.  Requires      
   the Department of  Commerce  and  Community  Affairs  to  make  grants      
   available   to   units   of  local  government.    Deletes  provisions      
   prohibiting a person from conducting  an  operation  for  the  receipt      
   transfer, recycling, or other management of construction or demolition      
   debris   without   maintenance  of  load  tickets  and  certain  other      
   manifests.  Requires a person who conducts generation, transportation,      
   or recycling of construction or demolition debris to maintain  certain      
   identifying documentation for 3 years. Exempts certain facilities that      
   use   construction   debris   for  certain  specified  uses  from  the      
   documentation requirement. Provides that certain provisions concerning      
   maintenance of identifying documentation shall not apply to generation      
   or recycling of clean construction or  demolition  debris  in  certain      
   circumstances. The provisions concerning demolition debris are              
   effective immediately. The provisions concerning solid waste are            
   effective January 1, 1999.                                                  
          FISCAL NOTE, H-AM 1 (Environmental Protection Agency)                
          Implementation would cost approximately $137,500.
