Current Bill Summary


SB 778 - Current law requires an annual adjustment for inflation to the $1.50 and $1 per ton fees charged by operators of solid waste sanitary landfills, demolition landfills, and transfer stations, except no adjustment is allowed during the years 2005 through 2014. This act removes the 2014 end date, effectively disallowing an inflation adjustment to these fees any time after October 1, 2005.

This act is similar to TAT/SS/SCS/HB 1251 (2012).
