§ 2813.3. Removal from the Priority List; Suspension and Rejection of Claims.
(a) A claim that has been placed on the priority list may be removed if:
(1) the claimant is not in compliance with any of the applicable requirements of this chapter, the California Code of Regulations, title 23, division 3, chapter 16, Health and Safety Code, division 20, chapters 6.7 or 6.75, or any provision of the Water Code under which the claimant is required to take corrective action in response to an unauthorized release of petroleum from an underground storage tank or a residential tank; or
(2) the claimant fails to provide necessary documentation or information, or refuses to provide access to the site that is the subject of the claim to a regulatory agency; or
(3) the information submitted with the claim contains a material error.
(b) The Division staff shall issue a Notice of Intended Removal from the priority list prior to such removal. The notice shall inform the claimant that the Division staff proposes to remove the claim and shall state the grounds for the Division staff's determination.
(1) If the Division staff issues such a notice, no payments shall be made on account of such claim until the claimant has corrected the condition that was the basis for the removal. If, within 30 days after the date of the notice, the claimant fails to correct the condition that is the basis for the proposed removal or fails to file a request for review or an appeal with the Fund Manager or Division Chief, as appropriate, pursuant to article 5 of this chapter, the Division staff shall remove the claim from the priority list when the 30-day period has ended.
(2) In the event of a request for review by the Fund Manager, an appeal to the Division Chief, or a petition to the Board, the claim involved shall remain on the priority list pending resolution of the request for review, appeal or petition but no payments shall be made on the claim until such resolution.
(c) For claims filed before January 1, 1997, a claimant may resubmit a claim that has been removed from the priority list pursuant to subdivision (a) of this section if the claimant has corrected the condition that was the basis for the removal. A claim that is resubmitted pursuant to this subdivision shall be treated as a new claim, and if the Division determines that the claimant has corrected the condition that was the basis for removal, the claim's priority ranking shall be based on the date when the Division makes its determination. A claim may not be resubmitted to the Fund if the information presented about the claim contains a material error that was a result of misrepresentation or fraud or other misconduct on the part of the claimant.
(d) For claims filed on or after January 1, 1997, the Division may suspend a claim for the reasons described in subdivision (a) of this section as follows:
(1) The Division may suspend a claim that is on the priority list until the claimant corrects the grounds for suspension of the claim. When the claimant corrects the grounds for suspension of the claim, the Division shall give the reinstated claim a new priority ranking as of the date of reinstatement.
(2) The Division may suspend a claim that has received a letter of commitment until the claimant corrects the grounds for suspension of the claim. When the claimant corrects the grounds for suspension of the claim, then the Division shall reinstate the claim and reimburse the claimant's eligible costs when funding is available.
(e) Notwithstanding subdivision (d)(1)-(2), for claims filed on or after January 1, 1997, if the information presented on the claim contains a material error, and the error resulted from fraud or misrepresentation on the part of the claimant, the Division may revoke the claim's eligibility and may bar the claim from further participation in the Fund.
(f) If a claim is rejected by Division staff before the claim is placed on the priority list, the claimant may either appeal the decision to reject the claim pursuant to article 5 of this chapter or the claimant may submit a new claim.
