Current law defines as a covered facility a stationary source of
air pollutants that reported in its federal toxics release inventory filing at
least one of the following amounts of the following covered air toxics
in one year:
  • For hydrogen cyanide, 10,000 pounds;
  • For hydrogen sulfide, 5,000 pounds; and

  • For benzene, 5,000 pounds.
The bill expands upon the requirements applicable to covered
facilities by:
  • Directing the air quality control commission to consider, at
least every 5 years, adding new types of covered air toxics
and adjusting the applicable emission thresholds;
  • Requiring that a covered facility's outreach to communities
near the covered facility, in particular disproportionately
impacted communities, be conducted in the 2 most
prevalent languages spoken in the communities;
  • Requiring covered facilities to conduct fenceline
monitoring of covered air toxics and to publicly report the
results of the monitoring; and
  • Requiring covered facilities to take corrective action within
15 days after a violation occurs.
The bill also requires the division of administration in the
department of public health and environment to conduct
community-based monitoring of covered air toxics in areas near covered
facilities and to publicly report the results.
