The general assembly hereby finds and declares that the rising expense of operating and maintaining aboveground storage tanks, including but not limited to the cost of liability insurance, has resulted in the discontinuance of business by several small gasoline service station operators and imposes an increasing hardship on those service stations still in operation. The general assembly further finds that the viability of aboveground storage tanks is being recognized and that rules and regulations for aboveground storage tanks have been promulgated and endorsed by the western fire chiefs association's uniform fire code committee and the national fire protection association's automotive and service station code committee. The general assembly further finds that aboveground storage tanks for fuel products are feasible and economical and should be permitted under certain narrowly drawn circumstances.
