Sunset Coal Mine Board Of Examiners

Concerning the continuation of the coal mine board of examiners, and, in connection therewith, implementing recommendations contained in the 2019 sunset report by the department of regulatory agencies.
2020 Regular Session
Natural Resources & Environment
Bill Summary

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.)
