STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE

 

In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Twenty Four

 

AN ACT relative to permits for the siting of new landfills.

 

Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:

 

1  New Subparagraph; Landfill Permits; Public Benefit Requirement; Brownfield Identification.  Amend RSA 149-M:11, IV by inserting after subparagraph (b) the following new subparagraph:

(c)  The availability of brownfield sites that could serve as reasonable substitute sites for a facility proposed by a permit applicant that would be located on a greenfield site. The department shall require an applicant seeking permits for a landfill on a greenfield site to identify alternative brownfield sites within the state that could reasonably provide similar public benefits, and demonstrate for all such brownfield sites whether the greenfield site provides greater public benefits, and if so, by how much. In this section, the definition of brownfields is the same as used in RSA 147-F:3, II.  Greenfields are potential landfill sites which are undeveloped and do not meet the definition of brownfields.

2 Effective Date. This act shall take effect upon its passage.
