(From the Coosa River Basin Initiative):
CRBI Executive Director Jesse Demonbreun-Chapman stood alongside Georgia Governor Brian Kemp earlier this week as Kemp signed House Bill 31 at the state capitol. Known as the Hazardous Waste Trust Fund, the bill is a major win for CRBI. CRBI worked for many years with state legislators to make this moment possible.
HB 31 amends the Georgia constitution to allow hazardous waste funds to be dedicated to clean up abandoned hazardous sites and failing landfills. Introduced in the house by Rep Debbie Buckner, State Senator Chuck Hufstetler of Rome carried it in the Senate.
