Current Amendment: 3710R072.GM.DOCX to Bill 3710
Senator MALLOY proposes the following amendment (3710R072.GM.DOCX):
Amend the bill, as and if amended, Part IB, Section 34, DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH & ENVIRONMENTAL CONTROL, page 413, line 13, by adding an appropriately numbered new proviso to read:
/ 34.___ (DHEC: Solid Waste Management Facilities) The department shall charge an annual fee for each solid waste management facility operating in this State that accepts waste generated from out-of-state. The fee shall be calculated by (1) determining the percentage of waste collected from out-of-state sources annually as compared to the total amount of waste collected by the facility annually; and (2) multiplying the percentage by the total county or municipal operating property tax charged to the facility for the applicable year. If the facility is operated by a county or municipality and the facility accepts out-of-state waste, the percentage of out-of-state waste must be multiplied by the applicable amount of the property tax that the facility would be charged annually if the facility's property were not exempt from property tax. The fee shall be remitted to the department for environmental mitigation programs and to compensate local residents for damages related to the operation of solid waste management facilities. The department may carry forward any unexpended funds. /
