Reform Notice of Violation Procedures

Current administrative enforcement procedures allow little flexibility or discretion on the part of inspectors. Generally, any and all excursions of existing regulations and requirements result in the immediate issuance of a “notice of violation.” With the exception of immediate threats to health, safety or the environment, inspectors should have an alternative to issuing an NOV for noncompliance and the authority to waive fines for first-time offenders. There is currently no end date for punitive administrative action stemming from an NOV. The Chamber urges the General Assembly to place reasonable time limits on punitive action following the issuance of NOVs by state agencies.
