Library of Congress Summary

The summary below was written by the Congressional Research Service, which is a nonpartisan division of the Library of Congress.

Amends the Solid Waste Disposal Act to extend to November 8, 1989, the effective date for maintaining evidence of financial responsibility for owners and operators of underground storage tanks.
Prohibits the first suspension of such financial responsibility requirement for a class or category of tanks from exceeding 360 days.
(Such suspension is currently authorized for up to 180 days if the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency makes certain determinations.) Requires the Administrator to assist States in establishing:
(1) State assurance funds to enable underground storage tank owners and operators to meet the financial requirements of the Act; and
(2) programs to encourage private insurance providers to offer insurance coverage to such owners and operators.

House Republican Conference Summary

The summary below was written by the House Republican Conference, which is the caucus of Republicans in the House of Representatives.

No summary available.

House Democratic Caucus Summary

The House Democratic Caucus does not provide summaries of bills.

So, yes, we display the House Republican Conference’s summaries when available even if we do not have a Democratic summary available. That’s because we feel it is better to give you as much information as possible, even if we cannot provide every viewpoint.

We’ll be looking for a source of summaries from the other side in the meanwhile.
