1. PECFA claim submission deadline
Under current law, DNR administers a program, commonly known as PECFA, to reimburse owners of certain petroleum product storage tanks for a portion of the costs of cleaning up discharges from those tanks. Under current law, a person is not eligible for reimbursement unless the person submits a PECFA claim to DNR before July 1, 2020. The bill changes that date to July 1, 2021.
For further information see the state fiscal estimate, which will be printed as an appendix to this bill.
