The House Environmental Resources and Energy Committee is scheduled to meet June 27 on legislation eliminating the sunset date on the $2 Recycling Fee in Act 101 and a bill to provide for alternative onlot septic system technologies in local sewage plans.
The bills include

There is speculation the Committee will also consider other amendments to Act 101 during the meeting.
