    Track:

     • Support Septic Tank inspections (delayed implementation by six months in Special Session, may be changed again in Regular Session)

     • Track State agency rulemaking bills (HB 1565 vetoed by Governor/overturned by Legislature in Special Session. Requires any regulation with cost of $1 million statewide impact over five years to be ratified by the Legislature. May adversely affect water quality and environmental regulation. Applies to regulations before adoption or in the process of being amended.)
