Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This bill increases the minimum host fee applied to coal ash from $1 to $2.50 per ton. Coal ash would now be charged the same host fee per ton as regular household waste. This increase (and a host fee) only applies to a municipal solid waste disposal facility that is owned by a private entity. Lastly, the bill reduces the restrictions on how the host fee can be spent from 50% to 40%.
