The May 17 Environmental Quality Board meeting agenda includes another proposed regulation increasing fees, this one is for the laboratory accreditation program that would raise about $170,000 more per year.
In April, the EQB approved proposed fee increases for public comment for the radon and radiological health programs totaling an increase of about $2.1 million annually.
DEP is scheduled to increase permit fees in at least six programs, including the coal and noncoal mining program to help make up for General Fund cuts to the agency.
The May agenda also includes a final rulemaking updating the remining standards for coal surface mining.
The meeting will be held in Room 105 Rachel Carson Building starting at 9:00.For more information and available handouts, visit the Environmental Quality Board webpage or contact Laura Edinger, Environmental Quality Board, by calling 717-772-3277 or send email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
