Summary:

This bill amends the Finance Authority of Maine's waste motor oil disposal site remediation program by directing all remaining funds in the Waste Motor Oil Revenue Fund to the Department of Environmental Protection's Uncontrolled Sites Fund and by repealing the laws governing the program. Except for the statutory provision regarding the premium imposed on the sale or distribution of motor vehicle oil, the laws governing the program are repealed September 30, 2021. The premium imposed on the sale or distribution of motor vehicle oil was previously terminated by operation of law, and the repeal of the corresponding statutory provision is effective when the legislation is approved. The bill also amends other sections of law by correcting cross-references and making technical changes resulting from the repeal of the laws governing the program.
