Section 48004

48004. Money in account. (a) The money in the account shall be used by the Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery, upon appropriation by the Legislature, for the following purposes:

(1) The administration and implementation of this division by the Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery.

(2) The state water board's and regional water boards' administration and implementation of Division 7 (commencing with Section 13000) of the Water Code at solid waste disposal sites.

(b) It is the intent of the Legislature that an amount that is sufficient to fund state water board and regional water board regulatory activities for solid waste landfills be appropriated from the account by the Legislature in the annual Budget Act. Those persons who are required to pay the fee imposed pursuant to Section 48000 shall not be required to pay the annual fee imposed pursuant to subdivision (d) of Section 13260 of the Water Code with regard to the same discharge if the requirements for the waiver of that fee set forth in paragraph (3) of subdivision (d) of Section 13260 of the Water Code are met.

(c) Notwithstanding subdivisions (a) and (b), if the fee established pursuant to Section 48000 does not generate revenues sufficient to fund the programs specified in this section, or if the amount appropriated by the Legislature for these purposes is reduced, those reductions shall be equally and proportionally distributed between funding for the solid waste programs of the state water board and the regional water boards and the Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery.
