Synopsis: Hazardous air pollutant emissions. PROPOSED CONFERENCE COMMITTEE REPORT TO ESB 259. Allows the air pollution control board to adopt rules to establish general requirements with respect to hazardous air pollutant emissions for reporting after December 31, 2003. Allows the board to adopt rules to: (1) require sources to report hazardous air pollutant emissions if the reporting is necessary to demonstrate compliance with certain federal standards; and (2) allow the department of environmental management (IDEM) to request certain site specific data. Requires the environmental quality service council (EQSC) to: (1) develop a plan for the creation and funding of an effective hazardous air pollutant monitoring program to help assess potential health risks from hazardous air pollutants posed by urban air and significant sources; and (2) consider methods for the collection and dissemination of hazardous air pollution release information. Requires that IDEM and the state department of health (SDOH) jointly develop a five year hazardous air pollutant strategy before November 1, 2002. (This conference committee report: (1) specifies the permissible effective dates of air pollution control board rules; (2) specifies that the EQSC plan is to help assess potential health risks and directs the EQSC to report on its responsibilities under this act at the time it submits its 2002 final report; (3) specifies that the IDEM/SDOH strategy includes risk priorities based on available information; and (4) deletes a provision to establish the Indiana Harbor Ship Canal Maintenance Dredging and Disposal Project study committee.)
