The Department of Ecology proposed to amend Wash. Admin. Code §173.183, Preassessment screening and oil spill compensation schedule regulations. Among other changes, the amendments will alter the amount of compensation that can be calculated for spills of 1,000 gallons or more from $1 to $100 per gallon to $3 to $300 per gallon. There will be public hearings September 25 & 26, 2012, and the deadline for comment is October 4. The date of intended adoption is December 14.
