Is the coal ash ordeal done in Pickens County?
Rep Davey Hiott entered a bill that would change the law passed in 2016 that was quickly passed because of the coal ash issue in Pickens County.
Reps. Clary and Collins added their names to it today.
This is what was passed three years ago.
Here is the potential change:
"SECTION 3 of Act 138 of 2016 is repealed."
That means this line is repealed.
"SECTION 3. The provisions of this act are repealed five years from the act's effective date, unless reenacted or otherwise extended by the General Assembly"
So, if this bill passes it will remove the sunsetting of the original law that passed.
