§77.  Cooperative agreements

The commissioner may enter into a cooperative agreement and may disburse monies from the Fund to any person, private trust, association, committee, or other entity for the purpose of evaluation, investigation, testing, containment, and cleanup of specific abandoned oilfield waste sites without a formal declaration of abandonment and with waiver of recovery from parties to the agreement, if deemed in the public interest.  Any party to such an agreement must be licensed according to law before negotiating or entering into such a contract.  Cooperative agreements shall require reasonable contributions in cash or services in kind from private parties to the agreement and shall provide for reasonable supervision by the commissioner. Cooperative agreements shall be negotiated informally by the commissioner and shall not be subject to any other requirements of law for entering into contracts.  Prior to the execution of such an agreement, it shall be reviewed by the commissioner of the division of administration, and on completion of the cleanup, the commissioner shall submit a report on the cleanup to the chairman of the Senate Natural Resources Committee and the chairman of the House Natural Resources and Environment Committee.
