Senate Bill Updating Littering, Illegal Dumping Penalties Goes To Governor

The House and Senate passed and sent to the Governor Senate Bill 431 (Scavello-R-Monroe) which would authorize designation of local litter enforcement corridors where fines for littering or illegal dumping can be doubled and tripled.
The bill would automatically make all designated scenic highways local litter enforcement corridors.
In addition to monetary fines, the bill adds a provision to also require a person in violation of the littering law to pick up litter or illegally dumped trash for up to 100 hours depending on the type of violation.
The bill now returns to the Senate for a concurrence vote.  A House Fiscal Note and summary is available.
