OSFM Responses to Public Comments on Changes to UST Rules

The Office of the State Fire Marshal (OSFM) is responding to Public Comments Received on the Underground Storage Tank rule changes implementing new federal UST requirements (at 41 Ill. Adm. Code 174, 175, 176 and 177).  Here is a summary of the public comments received and the OSFM responses.

 Ambulance Revolving Loan Rules

​On August 18, 2017, the Governor signed House Bill 3108 (now Public Act 100-0152).  That legislation increased the maximum loan award for the purchase of an ambulance from $100,000 to $200,000 and made no other changes. This proposed rulemaking increases the maximum eligible ambulance loan amount from $100,000 to $200,000 for a recipient per the terms of Public Act 100-0152.  Recipients will now be eligible for a loan up to $200,000 with a maximum 10-year repayment period for the purchase of an ambulance. 

OSFM will be accepting comments during the 45 day public comment period from Friday March 16, 2018 through Monday April 30, 2018.  Comments may be sent to:

 Repeal of Obsolete Rules

The Office of the State Fire Marshal (OSFM) proposes to repeal or remove obsolete rules from the Administrative Code as it pertains to Public Act 94-600 (effective August 15, 2005) which repealed the Fire Drill Act [105 ILCS 120] and replaced it with the School Safety Drill Act [105 ILCS 128].  Following adoption of the School Safety Drill Act, Joint Rules were promulgated by the OSFM and the Illinois State Board of Education to implement that Act (see 29 Ill. Adm. Code 1500), thus making the Fire Drill Act redundant.  OSFM inadvertently failed to repeal the rules in 2005 that implemented the Fire Drill Act which were codified in Part 110 Fire Drills in Schools. The OSFM will address this oversight by repealing 41 Ill. Adm. Code 110. 

OSFM will be accepting comments during the 45 day public comment period from Friday March 16, 2018 through Monday April 30, 2018.  Comments may be sent to:
