The act implements recommendations of the department of regulatory agencies' sunset review and report on the coal mine board of examiners in the department of natural resources by:
- Continuing the board for 9 years, until 2029;
- Defining "commissioner" as the commissioner of mines in the statute that lists the board members;
- Replacing an obsolete reference to a "flame safety lamp" with a reference to a "digital gas detector"; and
- Repealing references to "assistant mine foreman" because that is no longer a position held in coal mines.
(Note: This summary applies to this bill as enacted.)
