Testimony

Testimony: 

- Peter Yronwode and Jim McNichols, Department of Natural Resources 
Overall, the program was successful in accomplishing its intended purpose. The 
Department of Natural Resources performs stack tests to determine the emissions of 
chemicals in the charcoal smoke as they are released into the air. The eligibility for 
the credit may have been too lax as some of the companies may have qualified for the 
credit that may not have been intended by the legislature to receive the credit. 

Recommendation: 

The committee recommends no change be made.
