Welcome to FindLaw's Cases & Codes, a free source of state and federal court opinions, state laws, and the United States Code. For more information about the legal concepts addressed by these cases and statutes, visit FindLaw's Learn About the Law.

(a) During the term of a permit, the permittee may submit to the commissioner an application for revision of the permit, with necessary revisions to the permittee's reclamation plan.

(b) The commissioner may not approve an application for revision of a permit unless the commissioner finds that reclamation required by this chapter and the regulations adopted under it can be accomplished under the necessary revisions to the reclamation plan. The commissioner shall establish guidelines for determining the extent of revision for which all permit application requirements and procedures, including notice and hearing, shall apply. A revision that, in the commissioner's determination, requires significant revisions to the applicant's reclamation plan must, at a minimum, be subject to a notice and hearing requirement.

(c) A permittee may not apply under this section for an extension of the permit area, except by incidental boundary revision.

(d) A permittee may not transfer, assign, or sell a permit or the rights granted under a permit without the written approval of the commissioner. A successor in interest to a permittee may continue the surface coal mining and reclamation operation of the permittee until the successor's transfer application is granted or denied if the successor

(1) applies for a new permit within 30 days of succeeding to that interest; and

(2) obtains the same bond coverage as the permittee.

(e) After the commissioner issues a permit, the commissioner shall, within a time limit established by regulation, review the permit and may, for good cause, require reasonable revisions of the permit during the term of the permit. A revision under this subsection must be based on a written finding of the commissioner relating to the need for the revision and is subject to notice and hearing requirements established by the commissioner by regulation.
