E-M:/ tipping fees out of state trash

In Ohio I was involved in raising tipping fees on hazardous waste in part because of the out of state waste issue.  The legislation was supposed to include provisions for the funds to be used solely for cleanup, but it never got added in Ohio's rule making process.  The funds are used to pay for the salaries of the inspectors and a good portion of Ohio's hazardous waste regulatory program. 
If tipping fees are to happen - restrict to use to cleanup(actual, not soft costs) or wetland purchases and creations etc.
