Bills on storage tanks
Submitted By Jeff Barbosa
Working with local environmental health administrators across the state, Assemblymember Bob Wieckowski (D-Fremont) pushed three bills through the Legislature to increase environmental protection by closing gaps in regulatory programs. Governor Jerry Brown signed AB 1566 and AB 1701 on September 25, 2012. AB 1620 was signed on August 27, 2012. The laws focus on the Above-Ground Petroleum Storage Act (APSA), the Underground Storage Tank (UST) law and the Hazardous Waste Control Law.
