REGULATORY IMPACT ANALYSIS AND TIERING STATEMENT
Contact Person:
Corey Ann Howard Jackson
(1) Provide a brief summary of:
(a) What this administrative regulation does:
KRS 39E.990 provides penalties for any person violating any provision of KRS Chapter 39E, and any administrative regulation promulgated, or order issued, pursuant to KRS Chapter 39E. KRS Chapter 39E reflects the federal requirements of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act of 1986. This administrative regulation provides the procedure to assess, protest and appeal penalties provided for in KRS 39E.990.
(b) The necessity of this administrative regulation:
This administrative regulation is necessary to carry out the requirements of KRS 39E.040(6) and KRS 39E.080(4) that require the Kentucky Emergency Response Commission (KERC) and the Division of Emergency Management to issue administrative regulations to implement KRS Chapter 39 E and the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act of 1986. This Act, known as Title III, governs the reporting requirements and procedures for individuals, businesses, and governmental agencies regarding the manufacture, use, storage, or transportation of hazardous substances.
(c) How this administrative regulation conforms to the content of the authorizing statutes:
KRS 39E.990 provides penalties for any person violating KRS Chapter 39E. KRS Chapter 39E provides standards for facility owners or operators that manufacture, use, store, or transport hazardous substances. This administrative regulation supports compliance with the requirements of KRS 39E.990 by providing the procedure for the Commission to assess penalties and notify applicable owners or operators of facilities of non-compliance. This administrative regulation also provides methods for protest and appeal of penalties associated with non-compliance.
(d) How this administrative regulation currently assists or will assist in the effective administration of the statutes:
This administrative regulation establishes the penalty process and procedure that results from non-compliance with the statutes governing the storage, transport, or manufacture of hazardous substances.
(2) If this is an amendment to an existing administrative regulation, provide a brief summary of:
(a) How the amendment will change this existing administrative regulation:
Provides a way to ensure compliance with the statutes and gives facility owners or operators an opportunity to become compliant after a notice of a violation before resorting to an administrative hearing.
(b) The necessity of the amendment to this administrative regulation:
There were errors and improper citations to sections within the regulation as well as inconsistencies regarding the trigger for administrative hearings.
(c) How the amendment conforms to the content of the authorizing statutes:
This administrative regulation supports compliance with the requirements of KRS 39E.990 by providing the procedure for the commission to assess penalties and notify applicable owners or operators of facilities of non-compliance.
(d) How the amendment will assist in the effective administration of the statutes:
The amended regulation will be clear and allow the facility owners or operators due process while also allowing a route to compliance, without an administrative hearing.
(3) List the type and number of individuals, businesses, organizations, or state and local governments affected by this administrative regulation:
This administrative regulation will affect the Department of Military Affairs, the Kentucky Emergency Response Commission (KERC) and individuals, businesses, and governmental agencies that manufacture, use, store, or transport hazardous substances.
(4) Provide an analysis of how the entities identified in question (3) will be impacted by either the implementation of this administrative regulation, if new, or by the change, if it is an amendment, including:
(a) List the actions that each of the regulated entities identified in question (3) will have to take to comply with this administrative regulation or amendment:
The overall requirements of the regulated entities will not change. This amendment will clarify options for Title II facilities to achieve compliance when given a notice of non-compliance. This will also allow the KERC to ensure greater compliance with KRS 39E with a more streamlined and simple penalty assessment and collection procedure.
(b) In complying with this administrative regulation or amendment, how much will it cost each of the entities identified in question (3):
There is no additional cost to these entities unless they incur a fee or penalty per KRS 39E.990.
(c) As a result of compliance, what benefits will accrue to the entities identified in question (3):
These entities will be notified of non-compliance and have an opportunity to become compliant before incurring greater fees or penalties.
(5) Provide an estimate of how much it will cost the administrative body to implement this administrative regulation:
(a) Initially:
None. The Department of Military Affairs administratively supports the KERC and this will not require additional costs. KERC fees are obtained through the required Tier II facilities fees. Those fees, and any penalties collected, then fund the KERC operation and a grant for Local Emergency Planning Committees (LEPC).
(b) On a continuing basis:
See (5)(a).
(6) What is the source of the funding to be used for the implementation and enforcement of this administrative regulation:
KERC fees are obtained through the required Tier II facility fees. Those fees, and any penalties, fund the KERC operation and a grant for Local Emergency Planning Committees.
(7) Provide an assessment of whether an increase in fees or funding will be necessary to implement this administrative regulation, if new, or by the change if it is an amendment:
No. The Department of Military Affairs currently administratively supports the KERC and will continue this support. This continuation will not require additional costs.
(8) State whether or not this administrative regulation establishes any fees or directly or indirectly increases any fees:
No. This administrative regulation does not establish or increase fees.
(9) TIERING: Is tiering applied?
Tiering was not used. The regulation will not reduce or modify substantive regulatory requirements, eliminate some requirements entirely, simplify and reduce reporting and recordkeeping requirements, reduce the frequency of inspections, provide exemptions from inspections and other compliance activities, or delay compliance timetables.
