Notwithstanding section 570, tank installers and removers shall be liable to other than the State as follows: With the exception of prohibited discharges resulting from an installer's or remover's negligence, the liability of certified installers and removers shall be limited to damages resulting from prohibited discharges discovered within the 12-month period immediately following the installation or removal of the underground tank or facility. To insure its continued relevance, this provision shall be reviewed by June 30, 1991, by the joint standing committee of the Legislature having jurisdiction over energy and natural resources.
