Bill On Littering Penalties Reported Out Of House Transportation Committee

The House Transportation Committee Tuesday amended and reported out Senate Bill 431 (Scavello-R-Monroe) changing the penalties for littering and illegal dumping.
The bill was amended to authorize the designation of local litter enforcement corridors where fines are doubled for certain offences or even tripled for commercial littering or illegal dumping.  All designed scenic highways are automatically considered litter enforcement corridors.
A second change would eliminate the higher fines in the Senate-passed version of the bill and reduce the number of hours a violator would have to pick up litter or illegally dumped trash in addition to the penalty.  Click Here for a copy of the amendment.
The amended bill now goes to the full House for consideration.
