Representative Hamner and Representative Coram presented House Bill 16-1276, concerning emergency responses at legacy mining sites. Under current law, the Division of Reclamation, Mining, and Safety in the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) may use funds from the Emergency Response Cash Fund to respond to hazardous conditions at a mining site only if the site is subject to the division's regulatory authority. This bill authorizes use of the fund to conduct an emergency response when circumstances exist at a legacy mine site that create a danger to public health or welfare, or to the environment. Representative J Becker moved that the committee vote on the bill without hearing testimony.
