Rep. Debbie Buckner
District 137

This legislation dedicates the state's hazardous waste management fee and the hazardous substance reporting fee to the Hazardous Waste Trust Fund (HWTF). 

HB 511, passed during the 2021 Session, dedicated only the solid waste tipping fees to the HWTF. The other fees and fines that contribute to the HWTF remain subject to appropriations by the Georgia General Assembly. HB 1421 ensures that all fees that contribute to the HWTF are dedicated.
