The secretary shall, by July 1, 2013, report to the
Legislature on the need, if any, for further regulation of air
pollution occurring from well sites, including the possible health
impacts, the need for air quality inspections during drilling, the
need for inspections of compressors, pits and impoundments, and any
other potential air quality impacts that could be generated from
this type of drilling activity that could harm human health or the
environment. If he or she finds that specialized permit conditions
are necessary, the secretary shall promulgate legislative rules
establishing these new requirements.
