Hazardous Waste Recycling Tax Credit Act of 1997greenspun.com : LUSENET : Waste Management : One Thread
The following was published in "RCRA Report" on 3/7/97. The Bill has been with the Ways & Means Committee since 1/7/97. I've checked the sites that track the movement of a bill (e-mail me if you'd like the Web address for that site) and there has been no action taken to date. At first blush, this act would appear to be beneficial to the collision repair industry, as well as a number of other industries, but also raises a great many issues. I will be posting additional information as it becomes available.
