	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   AB 1986, as introduced, Davis. Hazardous waste: public utilities.
   Existing law exempts a person who initially collects certain types
of hazardous waste at a remote site and transports the hazardous
waste to a consolidation site from complying with the existing
requirements concerning possession of a manifest and registration as
a hazardous waste transporter, if the person complies with specified
conditions, including if not more than 275 gallons or 2,500 pounds,
whichever is greater, of hazardous waste is transported in any
shipment. Existing law exempts a public utility, local publicly owned
utility, or municipal utility from those limits with regard to the
transportation of a certain amount of mineral oil or of hazardous
wastewater from the dewatering of utility vaults.
   This bill would declare the intention of the Legislature to enact
subsequent legislation regarding the transportation of hazardous
waste by public utilities.
   Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: no.
State-mandated local program: no.

legislation regarding the transportation of hazardous waste by
