Description

SB 677 afforded landowners or other affected parties a private right of action to pursue enforcement of environmental laws against violators or agencies who are failing to enforce existing law. An example might be the case of a rural landowner whose groundwater is at risk of contamination by a polluting company: if the state refuses to require the company to stop polluting groundwater, the landowner would have recourse in court. Vote scored is the Tabling motion in the Senate Conservation Committee. SB 677 is a priority bill and is double weighted in the calculation of a legislator’s score.

Outcome

SB 677 died in the Senate Conservation Committee.
