The amendment strikes the underlying bill and its associated fiscal impact.

It (1) creates a moratorium on certain activities related to fracturing waste, requires the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) to submit regulations no earlier than July 1, 2017, and (3) requires the agency to regulate a subset of products that contains waste from hydraulic fracturing. This is not anticipated to result in a fiscal impact.
