Current Bill Summary

SB 885 - If, after a public hearing, the Board of Trustees of the Petroleum Storage Tank Insurance Fund decides that a training program is necessary for underground storage tank operators, the Board is authorized to create one. The Board must develop the program in collaboration with the Department of Natural Resources, the Department of Agriculture, and affected private stakeholders. The training must be provided at no cost to individuals who are required to attend. The Board may contract with third parties to provide the training.

The Department of Agriculture must disregard the manufacturer's expiration date on motor fuel measuring devices and dispensing equipment and only require the replacement of such equipment when they fail inspection.

Any modification to the way motor fuel is measured or dispensed in a retail sale transaction must be specifically authorized by state statute before it may be modified in state regulation or before federal changes may be adopted by the state.

The act is similar to provisions in SS/SCS/HB 2109 (2010).
