  HB 436 - STRICTNESS OF AIR QUALITY REGS                                      
                                                                               
  REPRESENTATIVE AL VEZEY discussed House Bill 436, dealing                    
  with the Clean Air Act and prohibiting the Department of                     
  Environmental Conservation from adopting stricter standards                  
  than the federal standards.  He explained the bill did not                   
  prohibit the legislature from adopting stricter standards,                   
  and said it would also apply to bulk fuel tanks.  He added                   
  that the Administration opposes this bill, because the                       
  Department of Environmental Conservation wants the authority                 
  to beat the federal government to stricter regulations and                   
  thus preclude the federal government from adopting stricter                  
  regulations.                                                                 
                                                                               
  Number 120                                                                   
                                                                               
  CHAIR MACLEAN suggested REPRESENTATIVE VEZEY bring this bill                 
  to the caucus for discussion.                                                
                                                                               
  REPRESENTATIVE VEZEY agreed.  His regulatory subcommittee                    
  report will be held over until the next Task Force meeting.                  
                                                                               
  Number 140                                                                   
                                                                               
  CHAIR MACLEAN said the priority Task Force legislation list                  
  will be distributed to members via the minutes before the                    
  next meeting.                                                                
                                                                               
  Number 160                                                                   
                                                                               
  CHAIR MACLEAN adjourned the meeting at 3:10 p.m.
