        Introduced  by  Sens.  YOUNG, LITTLE, MARCELLINO, MURPHY, O'MARA -- read
          twice and ordered printed, and when printed to  be  committed  to  the
          Committee  on Environmental Conservation -- recommitted to the Commit-
          tee on Environmental Conservation in accordance with  Senate  Rule  6,

        AN ACT to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation  to  the
          proper screening of waste derived from oil and gas drilling operations
          for  radioactivity  prior to disposal at regulated solid waste manage-
          ment facilities
 
          The People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and  Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:
 
     1    Section 1. Legislative findings. The legislature hereby finds that the
     2  environmental  conservation  law  provides  for  the  establishment  and
     3  permitting of solid waste management facilities. Given  the  significant
     4  increase  in  oil  and  gas  drilling activity in Pennsylvania and other
     5  states, which has resulted in the  disposal  in  this  state  of  wastes
     6  generated  from  drilling activities in other states, and to address any
     7  oil and gas drilling wastes that may be generated by operations  in  the
     8  state,  the legislature hereby finds that solid waste management facili-
     9  ties that receive waste generated from oil and gas  drilling  activities
    10  should  be  required  to  implement screening and rejection criteria for
    11  radioactivity as a condition to obtaining a permit  to  operate  such  a
    12  solid waste management facility.
    13    § 2. Short title. This act shall be known and may be cited as the "oil
    14  and gas waste management act of 2016".
    15    §  3. Section 27-0707 of the environmental conservation law is amended
    16  by adding a new subdivision 2-d to read as follows:
    17    2-d. Any permit issued to  a  solid  waste  management  facility  that
    18  intends  to  accept  waste  from  oil  and gas drilling activities shall
    19  include screening and  rejection  criteria  for  radioactivity  in  such
    20  wastes.
    21    § 4. This act shall take effect immediately.
 
         EXPLANATION--Matter in italics (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                              [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                                   LBD06204-02-6
