Vote Recommendation: Against
This proposal aims to repeal GA resolution "Landfill Regulation Act" on the basis of it introducing unnecessary bureaucracy to landfill operation and maintenance, along with implementing unnecessary and costly regulations.
While the repeal proposal in question is well-constructed, it does not make an effective case for the target resolution necessitating a repeal. The proposal presents two primary concerns: that the resolution in question imposes unnecessary mandates, especially concerning the establishment of compliance agencies, and that the resolution imposes undue financial burdens on member nations. The target's mandate that member nations "establish, if such does not already exist, a state agency or similar organization with the responsibility of inspecting and regulating SWLs in accordance with this resolution" captures a variety of methods of complying with this clause, and the resolution's qualifying of its mandates regarding leachate disposal and physical barriers serves to prevent the exorbitant costs that the repeal is concerned with.
For these reasons, the Ministry of World Assembly Affairs recommends voting Against the at-vote General Assembly proposal, "Repeal 'Landfill Regulation Act'".
