1-50-6. Legislative findings--State Emergency Response Commission and fees on facilities reporting hazardous substances. The Legislature finds that in order to protect the public health, safety, welfare, and the environment of this state, it is in the public interest of the state to have a strong state emergency response commission with such resources as are necessary to fully implement the provisions of the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986 as amended to January 1, 1992. The Legislature further finds it to be in the public interest and good public policy to impose a reasonable fee upon facilities required to report hazardous substances as provided in that act in order to defray the costs to the state of administering this program.
