Libby Asbestos Superfund Advisory Team

Libby Asbestos Superfund Advisory Team

In 2017, the 65th Montana Legislature passed Senate Bill 315, which was signed into law by Governor Bullock and established a Libby Asbestos Superfund Advisory Team attached to DEQ for administrative purposes. The Advisory Team was created to enhance communication with stakeholders. In addition, the Advisory Team advises DEQ on administration of the Libby Asbestos Cleanup Trust Fund and operation and maintenance accounts.   The bill also established a full-time employee as the Libby Asbestos Superfund Liaison who will perform duties recommended by the team and facilitate the required quarterly Advisory Team meetings.
