Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Environmental Protection Act. Provides that the annual fees applicable to discharges under NPDES permits do not apply to (i) a unit of local government, (ii) a private sector contractor providing sewage treatment services or infrastructure under contract with the State, any department or agency of the State, a unit of local government, or a school district during the course of providing those services, or (iii) a not-for-profit organization. Requires the Environmental Protection Agency to refund the fees paid on or after July 1, 2003 by those persons or entities. Effective immediately.

 Fiscal Note (Environmental Protection Agency)
 HB 3827 would result in the loss of approximately $10 million in lost revenue to the State, or a little less than one-half the total annual revenue projected from NPDES fees. The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency does not currently possess information in its data system that allows it to identify those permit holders designated as not-for-profit organizations under Section 501(c) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986. This information would have to be supplied by each permit holder. However, if the lost revenue results in decreased appropriations to the Illinois EPA, cuts would have to be made in the permitting, inspection, and compliance activities to the Agency's Clean Water program. Since the fee revenue is used to match federal funding for water programs, the program cutbacks may be compounded by lost federal grant revenue.
