7. a. The State Treasurer shall reimburse the developer for 75% of the closure and remediation costs of the municipal solid waste landfill from the Municipal Landfill Closure and Remediation Fund upon approval of certification of the reimbursement pursuant to section 4 of P.L.1996, c.124 (C.13:1E-116.4). The developer shall be entitled to periodic payments from the fund in an amount equal to one half of the taxes due and payable pursuant to the "Sales and Use Tax Act," P.L.1966, c.30 (C.54:32B-1 et seq.) from any person required to collect the tax at the site of a redevelopment project which is subject to a redevelopment agreement between the developer and the State pursuant to section 3 of P.L.1996, c.124 (C.13:1E-116.3). Payments from the fund shall be made to a developer at the same frequency in which the payments are made to the State from the persons required to collect the tax. Payments to the developer shall be made within 15 days of receipt by the State of the taxes.
b. A developer shall submit to the director updated closure and remediation costs actually incurred by the developer for the closure or remediation of the municipal solid waste landfill located at the site of the redevelopment project as provided in the redevelopment agreement. The reimbursement authorized pursuant to this section shall continue until such time as the aggregate dollar amount of the reimbursement equals 75% of the dollar amount of the closure and remediation costs actually incurred by the developer, as certified to the director by the developer. To remain entitled to the reimbursement authorized pursuant to this section, the developer shall perform and complete all closure and remediation activities during the closure and post-closure periods as may be required pursuant to the memorandum of agreement entered into with the Commissioner of Environmental Protection pursuant to section 5 of P.L.1996, c.124 (C.13:1E-116.5). The Department of Environmental Protection may review the closure and remediation costs incurred by the developer to determine if they are reasonable.
