S.525 Pyrolysis (Table Senate Amendment 6 – Financial Assurance)
This amendment established financial assurance requirements for a pyrolysis facility, which kept any potential clean-up costs off the shoulders of the taxpayers. Though this amendment was tabled by a vote of 27-15, financial assurance requirements were a part of the final piece of legislation. This was a Pro-Conservation Amendment that failed. A “No” vote against tabling is the pro-conservation vote. We supported this amendment and opposed its tabling.
