08:09 AM -- Department of Public Health and Environment FY 2009-10 Cash-Funded Request
Mr. Gary Baughman, Director, Hazardous Materials Waste Management Division, Department of Public Health and Environment, presented a request for a FY 2009-10 cash-funded project, Cleanup Projects, American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. Committee members received a summary of the request, prepared by Legislative Council Staff (Attachment C). Mr. Baughman addressed questions about the federal consent decree associated with superfund sites and available funds from the Hazardous Substance Response Fund for operating and maintenance expenses for hazardous waste cleanup sites in the state. Representative Riesberg addressed a concern about whether the project will be subject to a six-month or 18-month encumbrance deadline. He said the project will be treated as if it has a six-month deadline for encumbering funds, but that the committee will entertain a future request to waive this deadline if necessary.
