S. 710, the Hazardous Waste Electronic Manifest Establishment Act

Cost Estimate

As ordered reported by the House Committee on Energy and Commerce on August 1, 2012

S. 710 would direct the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to establish an electronic manifest system to track the handling of hazardous waste. This legislation would authorize the appropriation of $6 million over the 2013-2015 period for EPA to establish the system. In addition, subject to provisions in future appropriations acts, this legislation would authorize EPA to collect user fees to offset the cost of developing, operating, and maintaining the system.
