Southeastern Public Service Authority. Provides that if a member locality withdraws from the authority, the locality shall not be obligated to continue depositing waste with, or paying waste disposal or management fees, rates or charges to, the authority for the same or comparable services. Also, the bill requires the General Assembly to appoint special commissions (i) to investigate the acceptance of out-of-area waste by the authority and make findings regarding whether it is in the best interest of the public and (ii) to investigate the operations and finances of the authority and make findings regarding the performance and financial stability of the authority. Also, numerous changes are made to the Virginia Water and Waste Authorities Act related to dissolution of an authority, out-of-state waste, and rates and charges. Read the Bill »
