UST Legislative Study Committee Meeting Recap
At 10:00 this morning, the Underground Storage Tank Legislative Study Committee met for its fourth session. It reviewed the UST Proposed Framework negotiated between APMA and ADEQ (distributed earlier this week and attached) point by point. The co-chairs of the Committee felt that, at this time, there were too many unanswered questions to proceed with full recommendations to the Legislature and Governor. It ultimately voted (1) to authorize ADEQ Director Darwin to commission a third party actuarial study to assess UST liabilities in the state and (2) to set up, through ADEQ, Stakeholder meetings to answer the remaining questions on insurance and other issues. The APMA Legislative and UST Committees will be meeting soon to debrief and determine how best to proceed.
For individuals who currently do not have health insurance, either for themselves, their spouses, or have children who are uninsured, who have waived employer-sponsored coverage believing they can buy their own coverage at any time throughout the year – they are mistaken. This is no longer the case. The last day to apply for coverage to any carrier is March 31st, 2014. Otherwise, you (or your uninsured employees) are out of luck until January 1st, 2015 and subject to a penalty over and above that.
