Current Bill Summary


HCS/SB 41 - Private nuisance actions based upon an air emission or water or solid waste discharge, other than the placement of nuclear waste, are specifically prohibited if the emission or discharge was expressly authorized by and not in violation of a statute or regulation, a license issued by a state government agency, or a court order. However, a person may file suit based on these types of actions if the permit or order creates a condition not reasonably foreseeable at the time of issuance or if the permit holder fails to disclose certain facts.

This act is similar to SCS/SB 490 (2012) or SB 278 (2011).
