§ 2811.1. Claim Priority Classes.
(a) The Board will assign each acceptable claim to one of the following priority classes:
(1) Class A -Claims by owners of residential tanks as defined in article 2 of this chapter.
(2) Class B -Claims by owners and operators of underground storage tanks who meet the definition of a small business as defined in article 2 of this chapter, and cities, counties, districts, and nonprofit organizations that have total annual revenues of not more than $7,000,000. In determining the amount of a nonprofit organization's annual revenues, only those revenues directly attributable to the particular site which is the subject of the claim will be calculated.
(3) Class C -Claims by owners and operators of underground storage tanks who own or operate a business that employs fewer than 500 full-time and part-time employees, is independently owned and operated, and is not dominant in its field of operation, and claims by cities, counties, districts, and nonprofit organizations that have less than 500 full-time and part-time employees. In determining the number of employees employed by a nonprofit organization, only those full-time and part-time employees employed at the site that is the subject of the claim will be calculated.
(4) Class D -Claims by all other owners and operators of underground storage tanks.
(b) For purposes of assignment to a priority class, the Board will base the priority of a claim on the lowest priority appropriate for any claimant, including any joint claimant, the owners and operators at the time of discovery of the unauthorized release, and the owners and operators at the time of application to the Fund, unless the claimant can demonstrate to the satisfaction of the Division that such treatment would be inconsistent with the priority scheme mandated by section 25299.52, subdivision (b) of the Health and Safety Code.
