This bill extends the Clean Air Act Title V Operating Permit Program annual fees for facilities in Delaware. This bill was developed through the Title V Operating Permit Program Advisory Committee. Existing statutory authorization sunsets December 31, 2014. Fees are based on the number of staff hours spent on permitting, compliance, and enforcement for each facility and the facility’s air emissions. This bill authorizes the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control to collect annual fees for calendar years 2015 through 2017 at which point the authority sunsets. Finally, this bill specifies that the Title V Operating Permit Program Advisory Committee will aid in the development of a management system review of the Title V air permitting scope, funding, and revenue generation process, which will be performed by an independent third party. The goal of this review is to ensure the efficient use of the annual fees collected and a fair, balanced, and sustainable Title V Operating Permit Program.
