I have often observed that U.S. EPA's national leadership around
Brownfield revitalization sometimes confuses people. Brownfields cleanup
is typically regulated by state environmental agencies and development
is organized by private corporations, non-profit agencies, and local
government, subject to the guidance of local land use planning
jurisdictions. Thus, while national legislative and administrative
decisions around Superfund and other laws influence Brownfields
activity, keys environmental decisions are constantly being made by the
state, tribes, and territories.

CAREER/PRO would like this newsgroup to help monitor those decisions?
What's happening in your state? Is it good or bad? How does it differ
from national trends? It's hard for anyone, even associations of state
officials and high-priced newsletters that cover these issues, to keep
track. So we invite you to chip in with your own reports. They don't
have to be comprehensive. They can be opinionated. Just try to keep them
as accurate as you can.

I'll be kicking this effort off with a couple of postings on California.
Stay tuned.
