Pa Schneider Helbach co-sponsor hazardous materials response bill MADISON - State Rep. Marlin Schneider, D-Wisconsin Rapids, and state Sen. David Helbach, D-Stevens Point, are among authors of a spill-response bill designed to protect public safety and the environment. "The spill-response bill ... is designed to protect public safety and the environment from hazardous and extremely hazardous substances released during an accident," said Schneider, primary Assembly author of the bill. The bill provides training for response personnel, funding for hazardous-materials-response equipment, and a mechanism to develop regional and county response teams. "We need to be prepared to respond to hazardous releases with adequate equipment and properly trained personnel to ensure the health and safety of the residents near the release," said Helbach. "Wisconsin has reports on more than 1,300 hazardous materials spills or releases per year," said Robert M. Thompson, administrator of the Division of Emergency Government. The DEG and Department of Natural Resources duty officers log spill report calls and activate the immediate responses to these hazardous materials spills or releases. A few Wisconsin and national examples reported recently include: Buffalo County train derailment on July 8, which resulted in 27 cars and two engines overturning, igniting a carload of wood chips and a carload of butter. The contents of the two threatened the Mississippi River and sensitive ecological areas downstream. Central Storage Warehouse "butter fire" on May 3, which burned for several days, dumped a river of melted butter in nearby neighborhoods and sent tons of hot dogs up in smoke, among other materials. Hazardous substances, such as anhydrous ammonia, also were threatened. Koch pipeline leak discovered on June 29, which sent more than 40,000 gallons of fuel oil into the ground near Stevens Point.

The new Hazardous Materials Response Bill establishes a comprehensive program that includes regional response teams, grants to . county response teams, liability coverage for response teams and first-responder training. The bill also requires that a study be conducted by the State Emergency Response Board (SERB) to determine the potential for a hazardous-materials release on inland lakes and waterways. Key elements of the program are: The SERB will contract with no less than seven nor more than 11 regional response teams to react to Level A hazardous-materials releases. A release has a Level A ranking when the substance poses a high degree of hazard or potential hazard to the respiratory system and to skin upon contact or absorption. The SERB will provide an annual matching grant up to $10,000 to each county Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) that submits a strategic response plan. The grant money can purchase response equipment suitable for a Level B nazardous-materials incident. Materials are classified as a Level B release if they require equipment that protects the respiratory system, but concentrations of the substance are not considered harmful to the skin. The regional and county response teams will be considered the same as state employees or agents for purposes of ..liability coverage while they are respbn ding to a hazardous-materials "release. " 1 " ' ' - ""j-.j The SERB will allocate $150,000 for hazardous-materials-response training to provide statewide training for firefighters and law-enforcement officials. Half of the allocation will be provided by the Transportation Fund and the other half by the Environmental Repair Fund. The Response Team contracts and grants will be funded through fees assessed to highway motor carriers who transport hazardous materials in and through the state. will be distributed S.
