Republican lawmakers advanced legislation during the week to combat issues caused by trash and debris stuck to trucks leaving landfills.

Senate Bill 3566, sponsored by Senator Erica Harriss, would require a landfill in any county with a population over 250,000 to provide onsite facilities to clean the mud, gravel, waste, and other material from the wheels and undercarriages of trucks and other vehicles leaving the site.

SB 3566 unanimously passed the Senate and now heads to the House of Representatives for further consideration.
