Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Assembly convened:

Section 1. (NEW) (Effective from passage) Not later than July 1, 2019, the Commissioner of Energy and Environmental Protection shall establish a tire hauler license. Such tire hauler license shall be required of any person who engages in the commercial hauling of discarded tires in this state. Nothing in this section shall be construed to require such licensure for any person transporting used tires in this state for verifiable personal use. In establishing such license, the commissioner may establish a reasonable fee for such license. Any such license shall require that such licensee maintain a manifest, does not illegally dump such tires and only delivers such tires to facilities that store, dispose of or use such discarded tires in a manner that protects the public health and the environment. The commissioner may prescribe the form and manner of application for such license. In developing such tire hauler license requirements, the commissioner may review and consider the tire hauler license and permit requirements of other states, including, but not limited to, the states of Michigan, Maryland and Texas. The commissioner may adopt regulations, in accordance with the provisions of chapter 54 of the general statutes, to implement the provisions of this section.
