(This amendment provides $1,000,000 from the general fund each year to operate the Packaging Stewardship Program and Fund pursuant to House Bill 709. The bill would require producers of packaging materials located in the Commonwealth to pay a fee to the Department of Environmental Quality based upon the amount of packaging produced and whether such packaging is easily recyclable. This amendment is a placeholder until a fiscal impact statement for the bill is produced.)
