                  An act relating to the environment; modifying 
                  regulation of certain PCB wastes; amending Minnesota 
                  Statutes 2002, section 116.07, by adding a subdivision.
        BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: 
           Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 2002, section 116.07, is 
        amended by adding a subdivision to read: 
           Subd. 2b.  [PCB WASTE; OIL-FILLED ELECTRIC EQUIPMENT.] (a) 
        A person who generates waste containing greater than 50 parts 
        per million PCB which is subject to the federal requirements for 
        the management of waste under Code of Federal Regulations, title 
        40, part 761, is also subject to state hazardous waste 
        requirements for proper disposal, licensing, and fees.  PCB 
        small capacitors and lighting ballasts are also subject to state 
        on-site accumulation requirements. 
           (b) PCB waste associated with oil-filled electric equipment 
        voluntarily disposed of or retrofilled prior to the end of its 
        service life is eligible for a waiver from annual hazardous 
        waste fees.  To be eligible for the waiver, a generator and the 
        commissioner must execute a voluntary PCB phase-out agreement, 
        and before relicensing, the generator must demonstrate 
        performance of the agreement.  The PCB phase-out agreement must 
        include a description of specific goals, activities to be 
        performed to achieve the goals, phase-out criteria, and a 
        schedule for implementation.  
           (c) For the purpose of this subdivision, "PCB" has the 
        meaning given in section 116.36.
