BILL NUMBER:S1818

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the labor law, in relation to asbestos projects

PURPOSE:
To exempt municipalities from the payment of asbestos project
notification fees when the project is funded by RESTORE monies.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
This bill would amend Labor Law Section 904 subdivision 2 to relieve
contractors of municipalities performing asbestos projects which are
funded in part by RESTORE monies from paying the project notification
fee.

JUSTIFICATION:
Project notification fees for asbestos were doubled in the recently
enacted budget. These increased fees adversely impact municipalities
that are using RESTORE funding to remove vacant residential buildings.
The project notification fees charged to municipalities by contractors
performing the removal are paid out of RESTORE monies by the
municipality.
This situation effectively results in the state paying itself to the
detriment of the RESTORE program. This project notification fee
limits the RESTORE monies' value and decreases the number of vacant
residences which may be removed.

This limited exemption from the payment of the asbestos project
notification fee would enable municipalities to use RESTORE funding
for its intended purpose the removal of vacant buildings, which are
resulting in blight, drug havens and create hazards for fire and the
firemen who respond to such fires.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

EFFECTIVE DATE:
