Description

Environmental permit fees. Directs the Virginia Waste Management Board to adopt regulations to collect from any person operating certain facilities permitted for the disposal, storage, or treatment of nonhazardous solid waste such annual fees as are necessary to provide funding for the total direct costs of the nonhazardous solid waste management program when aggregated and combined with other existing fees. The bill also directs the State Water Control Board to adopt regulations specifying permit maintenance fees that each permitted facility shall pay to the Board for certain water quality or withdrawal permits. The bill requires the fee amounts to be set at an amount that is necessary to collect no less than 40 percent and no greater than 50 percent of the direct costs required for the administration, compliance, and enforcement of such permits. The bill contains enactment clauses that (i) direct the relevant Boards to adopt such regulations by January 1, 2022, and (ii) provide for the expiration of existing provisions for similar permit fees contingent upon the adoption of such regulations.
