Air pollution fees and enforcement have led to reductions in harmful emissions in Indiana. IDEM needs a fee structure that will allow this program to continue. SEA 155 enables the Environmental Rules Board to update air permit fees. If the fees are not updated, the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) will not have sufficient funds to continue operating the air permit program and air permitting might fall to EPA.
Final Update (4/28/23)
SEA 155 has been signed by the Governor! Please thank your state legislators if they voted for this legislation. See how your state legislators voted:
