|Subject:||Changes to the Underground Storage Tank Indemnification Board|
|In the near future, I plan on introducing legislation to amend the Storage Tank and Spill Prevention Act by making changes to the makeup of the Underground Storage Tank Indemnification Board.
Presently, the Underground Storage Tank Indemnification Board is comprised of members from the regulated community, including the Middle Atlantic Truck Stop Operators (MATSO), among others.
In 2006, MATSO dissolved their organization and relinquished their Board seat.
My legislation simply removes MATSO from the statutory Board-makeup and replaces them with the Pennsylvania Food Merchants Association (PFMA).
PFMA represents major fuel retailers, which account for thousands of underground storage tanks throughout Pennsylvania. I believe PFMA will provide valuable insight and knowledge to the Board.
I hope you will join me in cosponsoring this legislation.
Introduced as SB1142
