NOTICE OF PERIODIC REVIEW OF REGULATIONS

The Department of Environmental Quality will conduct a periodic review of Regulations for the Certification of Recycling Machinery and Equipment for Local Tax Exemption Purposes, 9 VAC 15-30. The purpose of the review is to determine whether the regulations should be terminated, amended or retained in their current form. The review of the regulations will be guided by the principles listed in Executive Order Number Twenty-One (2002) and Section 2.2-4007.1 of the Code of Virginia.

The Department and the Board are seeking public comments on the review of any issue relating to the regulations including whether (i) the regulations are effective in achieving their goals; (ii) the regulations are essential to protect the health, safety or welfare of citizens or for the economical performance of important governmental functions; (iii) there are available alternatives for achieving the purpose of the regulations; (iv) there are less burdensome and less intrusive alternatives for achieving the purpose of the regulations; and (iv) the regulations are clearly written and easily understandable by the affected persons. In addition, the Department and the Board are seeking public comments on ways to minimize the economic impact on small businesses in a manner consistent with the purpose of the regulations.

The purpose of the regulations currently being reviewed is provide the procedures and rules by which Section 58.1-3661 of the Code of Virginia may be administered. The statute specifies that recycling machinery and equipment certified by the Department of Environmental Quality may be eligible for a local property tax exemption. This section allows the governing body of any county, city or town to exempt or partially exempt qualifying machinery or equipment from local taxation. These regulations are designed to protect public health and/or welfare with the least possible costs and intrusiveness to the citizens and businesses of the Commonwealth and to provide the necessary procedures and rules by which the statute may be administered.
