TURA Fee Increase Update Reply

As a follow-up to the TURA update in our last e-blast, CAPACCIO attended the TURA Administrative Council meeting on September 19, 2014. The Council voted 4 to 2 to move forward with increasing TURA Fees. In particular, they would like to see Option B be approved. The three options for increasing fees are at the link below:

Industry and public interest groups were both there to present comments. This will still have to go to public hearings in the fall and the Administrative Council said they would send notices of public hearings to all TUR filers and TUR planners. The Council also agreed to have public hearings in 4 regions of the state so that all stake holders can easily attend. If the fee increase of 50% is passed, it could add an additional $10,000 to big companies using a lot of chemicals. We’ll keep you posted.
