Summary

This bill expands the uses of the Hazardous Waste Emergency Fund to include improving the design and structural safety of transportation infrastructure throughout the state, with priority given to rehabilitation of waste isolation pilot plant transportation routes. And it requires that a minimum balance of $1,500,000 be maintained in the fund.

 

A potential benefit of the bill might be a reduced likelihood of accidents involving vehicles engaged in the transportation of hazardous waste along the waste isolation pilot plant routes due to improved maintenance of those roads.
