Safe Disposal Naturally Occur Radioactive Material


Current law allows the state board of health to adopt rules concerning the disposal of naturally occurring radioactive materials (NORM) only after the federal environmental protection agency (EPA) has adopted rules concerning the disposal of NORM.

The bill appropriates $16,596,405 from the general fund to the department for use by the hazardous materials and waste management division to implement the act.
