Current Bill Summary

SB 686 -This act modifies a phrase from the lead abatement bill, HCS/SS/SB 95 (2005), as enacted by the first regular session of the 93rd General Assembly.

As it relates to risk assessment for the purposes of identifying the existence of a lead hazard, current law provides that the director of the Department of Health and Senior Services shall assess fees for licenses and accreditation and impose administrative penalties, with the fees and fines to be deposited into the state treasury to the credit of the public health services fund. This act provides that it is the fees and administrative penalties, not fines, which shall be deposited into the state treasury.
