AN ACT TRANSFERRING CERTAIN POWERS OF THE BRISTOL RESOURCE RECOVERY FACILITY OPERATING COMMITTEE TO THE WEST CENTRAL CONNECTICUT SOLID WASTE AND RECYCLING BOARD.
As Amended by House “A” (LCO 5024)
House Calendar No. : 288
OFA Fiscal Note
Municipal Impact: See Below
The bill requires the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) to allow the choice of in-state or out-of-state disposal of municipal solid waste (MSW) in the agency's solid waste management plan (SWMP) under certain circumstances. To the extent additional MSW is shipped out-of-state, municipalities may realize savings, as out-of-state disposal options are anticipated to result in lower tip fees to municipalities.
House “A” strikes the underlying bill which consolidates the functions and financial resources of certain Resource Recovery Facility Operating Committees into the West Central Connecticut Solid Waste and Recycling Board. It replaces the underlying bill with the provisions and fiscal impact described above.
