At stake: Senate Bill 25 would let hazardous waste facilities charge $1.25 per ton to store nonhazardous waste. Now there is no provision on how much a hazardous waste facility may charge to store nonhazardous waste. The Clean Harbors Lone Mountain hazardous waste facility is being paid to accept nontoxic sludge from the Hudson River in New York. The project is expected to take five years.
What happened: Passed the House 79-11.
What's next: Goes to the governor.
