NATURAL RESOURCES AND ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION ACT (EXCERPT)
Act 451 of 1994
324.21546 Liability; constitutionality of part.
(1) This part does not create any liability on behalf of the state. This part shall not be construed as making the state the guarantor of the fund.
(2) This part does not relieve any person who may be eligible to submit a claim to the authority from any liability that he or she may incur as the owner or operator of a refined petroleum underground storage tank system. The state is not assuming the liability of an owner or operator eligible for funding under this part; it is only providing assistance to such owners or operators in meeting the financial responsibility requirements.
(3) If all bonds or notes of the finance authority payable from the fund have been fully paid or provided for and if any provision of this part is found to be unconstitutional by a court of competent jurisdiction and the allowable time for filing an appeal has expired or the appellant has exhausted all of his or her avenues of appeal, this whole part shall be considered unconstitutional and invalid.
