Senate Adopts Dramatic Septic Amendments

In an unusually complicated procedural move, the Senate this evening accepted a lengthy series of floor amendments to the Administration’s so-called “septics bill” SB 236, to reframe its provisions in a substantially different direction. The set of amendments were supported by the Administration, and arose directly from extensive work involving numerous stakeholder groups including MACo.

Following a substantive debate (which itself followed several days of delays during recent negotiations), the amendments were accepted by a vote of 32-13.
