BILL NUMBER:S1984 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to environmental laboratory tests or sample analyses for mineral resources permits PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This bill requires that environmental testing under Article 23 ("Mineral Resources") must be performed by certified environmental laboratories, as is currently the case with testing under Articles 17 (water pollution), 19 (air Pollution) and 27 (solid and hazardous waste). SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Bill § 1 amends § 3-0119 of the Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) to require that any laboratory tests or sample analysis required pursuant to ECL Article 23 for which the Commissioner of Health issues certificates of approval pursuant to Public Health Law § 502 shall be conducted by a laboratory which has been issued a certif- icate of approval. EFFECTS OF PRESENT LAW WHICH THIS BILL WOULD ALTER: ECL § 3-0119 currently provides that any laboratory tests or sample analysis required pursuant to ECL Articles 17, 19 or 27 for which the Commissioner of Health issues certifications under the Environmental Laboratory Approval Program (FLAP) must be conducted by an ELAP-certified laboratory. This bill will extend this requirement to environmental samples taken pursu- ant to Article 23.
