HB 425: Reclamation Bonds

This house bill will authorize the Department of Environment to require a bond to be posted in connection with a permit for the use of any coal-combustion by-product for reclamation of a mining site. Under the terms of this bond the secure compliance with the applicable state and federal law will be enforced. The bond amount will have a capacity of the maximum limit of $7,500 per acre based on the number of affected acres. Under existing law a bond was required in connection with a mining operation permit. This new bond will be required in addition to the existing law’s reclamation bond requirements.
