Synopsis of Orginal Bill:
(without Amendments)
This legislation updates and streamlines the State’s Oil Pollution Act by eliminating a monetary cap for liability for damages, and requires that a Certificate of Financial Responsibility (COFR) be issued by the U.S. Coast Guard, pursuant to the requirements of the Oil Pollution Act of 1990, 33 U.S.C. Section 2701et seq., and regulations promulgated thereunder, instead of the issuance of a COFR by the Secretary of the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control and therefore eliminating duplicative state and federal requirements.
