Solid Waste Disposal Regulations – Passage - Vote Passed (225-188, 19 Not Voting)

The House passed a bill along party lines on Thursday to alter the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) role in overseeing the cleanup of hazardous waste sites. The measure requires the EPA to get states’ approval to add sites to a priority list within its Superfund cleanup program and would allow states to add potential cleanup sites to the list. It also would allow the EPA to review and revise waste disposal regulations and would eliminate the federal government’s claims to sovereign immunity from state enforcement actions over Superfund cleanups of sites on federal property.

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa voted NO
