E. Notwithstanding paragraphs B, C and D, the state cost share is 75% of closure costs, including landfill cover costs, incurred on or after July 1, 1994 and before December 31, 2015 2025, if:

(1) The commissioner originally issued a license on or before September 1, 1989 for operation of the landfill and found that the landfill met the design requirements and environmental protection standards at the time of licensing; and

(2) The commissioner has since determined that the landfill or portion of the landfill must be closed based on the finding that the landfill is contaminating groundwater and that corrective actions have not been successful.
