Ohio representative proposes new brine recycling fee to benefit local governments
 

Yesterday, Ohio Representative Ronald V. Gerberry (D-Austintown) introduced House Bill 500, which proposes a new fee designed to offset the "costs to a county and to a municipal corporation or township resulting from the location and operation of a facility that recycles brine from oil and gas operations." Unlike existing disposal fees that only exist at the state level, this proposal would allow a county, township or municipality to levy a fee of 17.5 cents per barrel of brine "recycled" in their community. A copy of the proposed legislation can be found here.
