Introduced  by  Sens.  YOUNG,  LITTLE,  O'MARA -- read twice and ordered
  printed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee on Environ-
  mental Conservation

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:

  Section 1. Legislative findings. The legislature hereby finds that the
environmental  conservation  law  provides  for  the  establishment  and
permitting of solid waste management facilities. Given  the  significant
increase  in  oil  and  gas  drilling activity in Pennsylvania and other
states, which has resulted in the  disposal  in  this  state  of  wastes
generated  from  drilling activities in other states, and to address any
oil and gas drilling wastes that may be generated by operations  in  the
state,  the legislature hereby finds that solid waste management facili-
ties that receive waste generated from oil and gas  drilling  activities
should  be  required  to  implement screening and rejection criteria for
radioactivity as a condition to obtaining a permit  to  operate  such  a
solid waste management facility.
  § 2. Short title. This act shall be known and may be cited as the "oil
and gas waste management act of 2019".
  §  3. Section 27-0707 of the environmental conservation law is amended
by adding a new subdivision 2-d to read as follows:
  2-D. ANY PERMIT ISSUED TO  A  SOLID  WASTE  MANAGEMENT  FACILITY  THAT
INTENDS  TO  ACCEPT  WASTE  FROM  OIL  AND GAS DRILLING ACTIVITIES SHALL
INCLUDE SCREENING AND  REJECTION  CRITERIA  FOR  RADIOACTIVITY  IN  SUCH
WASTES.
  § 4. This act shall take effect immediately.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                           LBD03739-01-9
