Explanation of Fiscal Impact
Introduced on January 10, 2017
This bill establishes that under the South Carolina Hazardous Waste Management Act, Chapter 56 of Title 44, a responsible party does not include a person who is excluded from liability under the Superfund Recycling Equity Act, 42 U.S.C. Section 9627 et seq. Under the Superfund Equity Act, a person is not a responsible party and not liable for hazardous waste cleanup costs if he arranges for recycling any material that is defined both as a recyclable material and a hazardous substance. Examples of such material include scrap metal, scrap rubber, and spent batteries. Based on the response from the Department of Health and Environmental Control, the waste management program currently considers those who arrange for the recycling of hazardous waste to not be a responsible party. Therefore, the bill does not have an expenditure or revenue impact on the general fund, federal funds, or other funds.
