Bill To Bar Some State Environmental Standards Fails To Get Out Of Senate Committee

A bill that would bar Indiana environmental regulators from creating standards harsher than federal rules is dead.

The house had already passed the bill but Senate Environmental Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Charbonneau, R-Valparaiso, held the bill in committee.

Rep. David Wolkins of Winona Lake was the bills sponsor and said the bill would have kept the state from imposing unnecessary regulations on industries.

Opponents say it would have tied regulators' hands and blocked them from creating Indiana-specific requirements.
