Outcome

CVSC supports this bill and it is active.

Introduce by Senator Fanning, the bill would prohibit the emission of air contaminants from a regulated source, like a power plant or chemical factory, that ‘creates a nuisance.’ The bill determines the criteria of a nuisance, which includes considering the duration and frequency of emissions, as well as the number of people it affects and how harmful the emissions are perceived to be. The bill requires that sources with permits for air contaminant discharge should specifically reduce to a minimum the release of odor.
