           Sec. 8.  [REIMBURSEMENT REQUIRED.] 
           (a) $32,220.40 of the money appropriated from the general 
        fund to the attorney general for fiscal year 1994 must be used 
        to reimburse businesses for legal costs described in paragraph 
        (b). 
           (b) Legal costs that may be reimbursed are attorney fees 
        and court costs incurred by a business as a result of offers 
        made by an agent of the attorney general in 1993 to remove 
        hazardous waste in an illegal manner.  A business may not seek 
        or receive reimbursement under this section if the business 
        incurred an administrative, civil, or criminal penalty related 
        to the hazardous waste removal offered by the agent of the 
        attorney general.  A business seeking reimbursement under this 
        section must file a claim containing information requested by 
        the commissioner of finance, and must, as a condition of 
        receiving reimbursement under this section, waive any and all 
        claims against the state or its agents arising from the offers 
        to remove hazardous waste described above.  Payment may be made 
        only upon receipt of a written release by the claimant in a form 
        approved by the attorney general. 
           Sec. 9.  [EFFECTIVE DATE.] 
           This act is effective the day following final enactment.
