If hazardous materials spill on Utah's streets or highways, the state of Utah would be able to recover labor and cleanup costs - if SB95 passes. The bill, sponsored by Sen. Fred W. Finlinson, R-Utah, was passed out favorably Thursday by the Senate Health Standing Committee.

"One out of four trucks are carrying some sort of product that, if released on the road, could become hazardous," Finlinson said. He wants transporters and material manufacturers, not Utahns, to be responsible for cleanup costs.
