Text Search




Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

     1-40-34.   Application of environmental audit provisions--Discovery of violations. The department may not pursue civil penalties or criminal prosecution for violations found during an environmental audit that are disclosed to the department secretary in writing within thirty days after the violation is found. Violations found by the department prior to the time a regulated entity has disclosed these violations in writing to the department secretary are not covered by the provisions of §§ 1-40-33 to 1-40-37, inclusive. If a state program is required in writing by a federal agency to assess penalties for a violation in order to maintain primacy over a federally-delegated program, or if violations caused damage to human health or the environment, the provisions of §§ 1-40-33 to 1-40-37, inclusive do not apply. If violations are found during an audit and disclosed in writing to the department secretary, the violations must be corrected within sixty days of discovery. If correction is not possible within sixty days, a written compliance schedule shall be negotiated between the department and the regulated entity to correct violations disclosed, unless the violation has been resolved to the satisfaction of the department at the time of the disclosure.
