EXCAVATION-OWNER RESPONSIBLTY                                              

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends  the  Adjacent  Landowner   Excavation   Protection   Act.      
   Provides  that, if an excavation is to be of a depth not more than the      
   standard depth of foundations and other conditions are met,  an  owner      
   or possessor of land who intends to make or to permit an excavation of      
   the  land  may not begin excavation until the owner or possessor takes      
   measures to protect a building or other  structure  on  the  adjoining      
   land  from  any  damage  or  in  which to extend the foundation of the      
   building or other structure, if the structure is to be  of  a  greater      
   depth than the walls or foundations of the adjoining building or other      
   structure  and  is to be so close as to endanger the building or other      
   structure.  (Present law allows the owner of  the  building  or  other      
   structure  on  the  adjoining  land  a  reasonable time to protect the      
   building or structure.)
