Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This proposed constitutional amendment authorizes the General Assembly to establish, by statute, true and dedicated trust funds whereby fees collected for a specific purpose must go to that purpose rather than be redirected to the state's General fund. 

ACCG has advocated for the General Assembly to dedicate the Hazardous Waste Trust Fund (HWTF) and Solid Waste Trust Fund (SWTF) for more than 10 years.  HR 164 would allow the General Assembly to take steps in right direction to "put the trust in trust funds"!
