Description Ecology is proposing agency request legislation to clarify several environmental statutes. The proposed legislation would:
• Correct sections that are confusing or contradictory
•Update provisions that impede the efficient implementation of environmental codes by state agencies and local governments
•Provide consistency among environmental statutes regarding appeal of agency actions to the Pollution Control Hearings Board
The Focus Sheet summarizes the proposed amendments to nine environmental statutes.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
