statutes.
The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do enact as follows:
Prefatory note: This bill was prepared for and contains a recommendation of the joint legislative council's special committee on remediation of environmental contamination. As part of its charge, the special committee was directed by the joint legislative council to "oversee the recodification of ch. 144, stats." Chapter 144 contains statutes related to water and sewage, air pollution, solid and hazardous waste, mining and oil and gas.
Chapter 144 has grown extensively as the legislature focused its attention on environmental regulation. In 30 years, ch. 144 has expanded from 8 pages to almost 120 pages in the printed statutes. As a result of this growth, which has occurred incrementally in each legislative session, some portions of ch. 144 are no longer well-organized.
In discussing and responding to its charge, the special committee determined that ch. 144 is not in need of extensive substantive revision. Although portions of ch. 144 are not well-organized, there is very little in ch. 144 that is not currently viable and that is not written so as to effectively accomplish the legislature's intent. The special committee does not believe that its charge from the joint legislative council is to rewrite substantive environmental policy in this legislation, but rather to make ch. 144 a more effective tool for accomplishing the environmental regulatory policies currently expressed in that chapter. Therefore, the special committee recommends, in this bill, the reorganization of ch. 144, which the special committee believes will make these statutes significantly more readable.
This bill separates ch. 144 into 8 newly created chapters of the statutes and reorganizes the material incorporated into each of the newly created chapters as necessary. In order to have sufficient consecutive chapter numbers to keep the environmental regulatory statutes together in a group, it is necessary to move the environmental regulatory statutes to a location other than current ch. 144.
The special committee believes that the rationale for the reorganization of ch. 144 applies equally to the other environmental regulatory statutes, which include chs. 147 (pollution discharge elimination), 159 (recycling) and 162 (pure drinking water) and s. 146.20 (septage disposal). Although not directed to consider these provisions by the joint legislative council, the special committee believes that these statutes should also be reorganized as part of the special committee's recommendation and they are, therefore, included in this bill.
The organization and numbering of the new group of environmental regulatory statutes in this bill is as follows: - See PDF for table PDF
The special committee explicitly intends that this bill will make no substantive changes in the environmental regulatory statutes. In a number of instances, the special committee found it necessary to make judgments where an existing cross-reference could not be simply renumbered into the new numbering scheme, either because of the way the bill reorganizes the statutes or because the current cross-reference is imprecise. In each instance where a cross-reference had to be modified rather than simply renumbered, the special committee has taken care to avoid changing the effect of the current statutes and, in many cases, has included a Note explaining its rationale for the modification. If a question arises about the effect of any modification, the special committee intends that the amendments in this bill be construed to have the same effect as the prior statutes.
For the convenience of the reader, a table of contents listing all section numbers of the reorganized chapters is included in this Prefatory note. Also, a finding aid is included at the end of this bill, which matches the current statute numbers with the new statute numbers assigned by this bill.
The remainder of this Prefatory note consists of a table of contents for the reorganized chapters:
