Package #3

​​​​​​Rulemaking ​Package #3, Public Resources Code (PRC) ​§2774 (b)- Inspections, Inspection Report Form, and Notice of Completion of Inspection Form.​

The SMGB will commence a formal 45-day public comment period for revisions to Article 1 of Title 14, Division 2, Chapter 8, Subchapter 1 of the California Code of Regulations (CCR), pertaining to conduct of surface mine inspections. Specifically, the SMGB intends to amend CCR section 3504.5, adopt a Notice of Completion of Inspection, form NOCI-1 (9/18), as well as repeal inspection form MMRC-1 (4/97) in order to replace it with, and adopt, a revised inspection form, MMRC-1 (9/18) as described under Public Resources Code (PRC) section 2774(b). On April 18, 2016, Governor Brown signed into law AB 1142 (Gray), which made significant revisions to the Surface Mining and Reclamation Act (PRC § 2710 et seq., “SMARA”). In order to enact the revisions to SMARA, the SMGB must address these changes by way of regulations.  

The public comment period will run from September 28 - November 12, 2018
