Fiscal Code Bill Allows Environmental, Other Permit Extensions Under Original Conditions

The Fiscal Code bill-- Senate Bill 1042 (Browne-R-Lehigh)-- considered as part of the budget settlement between the Senate, House and Gov. Rendell allows for environmental and other permits to be extended for a period of one year, if they are issued and expired between December 31, 2008 and July 2, 2013.
            The extensions would be good for a period of one year and the language says any requirements that have changed since the original permit was issued will not have an impact on whether an extension is granted.
            These provisions were formerly Senate Bill 569 (Pileggi-R-Delaware) and House Bill 1056 (M.O'Brien-D-Philadelphia).
            The intent of the provision is to allow projects to proceed that may have been delayed by the downturn in the economy under the original requirements of law at the time the permits were issued.
