CONCORD- House Environment & Agriculture committee chairman Howard Pearl (R- Loudon) released the following statement after the House voted OTP/A on SB367, relative to the regulatory status of advanced recycling and manufacturing facilities by a vote of 198-128.
“SB367 creates a clear regulatory structure for advanced recycling facilities that will encourage the investment and growth of this emerging industry in New Hampshire. As we continue to wrestle with how to deal with our post-use waste, this technology has the potential to increase the amount of plastics we are diverting from landfills and incinerators. By expanding this promising technology we are attracting new businesses and good-paying jobs to New Hampshire. I thank my colleagues for seizing the opportunity to advance this innovation and look forward to SB367 becoming law.”
