Fee Hikes Removed From Waste Disposal Bill

Senate Bill 119 — the controversial waste disposal plan — has been amended following last week’s hearing in which the OMA opposed the measure.

As reported by Gongwer News Service, the substitute bill by Sen. Bill Reineke (R-Tiffin) attempts to address opposition to the previous version’s 60% fee increase for solid waste disposal. Reineke says the substitute bill contains no new or increased fees, and no new regulation. The OMA will continue to monitor SB 119. 6/7/2023
