SB 249PassedParadeeThis Act extends the Clean Air Act Title V Operating Permit Program annual fees for facilities in Delaware, which have historically expired and been reauthorized by the General Assembly every three years. Existing statutory authorization to collect fees sunsets December 31, 2020. This legislation updates the fee assessments based on the work of the Title V Operating Permit Program Advisory Committee and makes additional clarifying updates to the fee provisions. For 2021-2023, the total fee will be comprised of a base fee, user fee, and a program fee. Base fees are based on the number of staff hours spent on the source’s permitting, compliance, and enforcement activities, while the user fee is based on the source’s air emissions. The program fee will be assessed based on the total base and user fees. A fee credit implemented to reduce a prior fund balance is allowed to sunset as scheduled. This Act authorizes the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control to collect Title V annual fees for calendar years 2021 through 2023 at which point the authority sunsets and would need to be reauthorized.AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 7 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO THE CLEAN AIR ACT TITLE V OPERATING PERMIT PROGRAM.

SB 252LOTWalshSenate Substitute No. 1 for Senate Bill No. 48 enacted a requirement that contractors bidding for large public works contracts provide craft training of apprentices and journeymen. This Act expands how contractors can satisfy this craft training requirement as follows: 1. Creates the option to make an annual payment to the Department of Education’s apprenticeship and training fund instead of providing the craft training. 2. Clarifies that the craft training may be provided by a contractor or subcontractor through agreement with another organization. 3. Broadens the range of craft training programs that satisfy the current requirement to be consistent with the definition of "craft training" under § 6902 of Title 29 and Constitutional law. This Act also clarifies that the craft training requirement applies to each craft included in the contract. This Act requires a greater than majority vote for passage because § 11(a) of Article VIII of the Delaware Constitution requires the affirmative vote of three-fifths of the members elected to each house of the General Assembly to impose a fee. AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 29 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO PUBLIC WORKS CONTRACTING.
