SCS/SB 360 - This act exempts political subdivisions which use its own personnel and equipment or contract for the excavation to obtain sand or gravel material for its own use and private individuals who excavate for personal use from the requirement that they obtain a permit prior to conducting in- stream gravel operations. The act also exempts individuals who mine less than 5,000 tons of material annually. However, DNR may establish excavation standards for exempt persons which are not more stringent than those for permitted operators. If an operator violates the standards DNR may then require that operator to be permitted. The act also removes the permit fee for those excavating less than 5,000 tons of material annually.
These provisions are similar to CCS/HCS/SS/SCS/SB 36 (2003).
