House of Representatives
Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session

To: All House members
Subject: Storage Tank Indemnification Board

In the near future, I plan to introduce legislation amending our 1989 Storage Tank and Spill Prevention Act to address a vacancy within the makeup of the Underground Storage Tank Indemnification Board.

Under the Act, the Board is currently comprised of members from the regulated community, including the Middle Atlantic Truck Stop Operators. However, this organization dissolved in 2006, relinquishing their Board seat.

My legislation replaces the Truck Stop Operators with an organization that will represent convenience stores and food merchants, who are now major fuel retailers in the Commonwealth and owners of thousands of underground storage tanks across Pennsylvania.

Accordingly, I hope you will join me in cosponsoring this legislation to make this small yet important change to our Storage Tank Indemnification Board.

Introduced as HB290
