Subject: California Brownfields Funding
On May 19, 1999, the California State Senate Resources Subcommittee of
the Committee on Budget and Fiscal Review approved a small, but
conceptually significant Brownfields budget line item. It designated $1
million for the "identification, development, and publication of a
Brownfields Priority Site Cleanup List, identification of responsible
parties, and issuance of cleanup orders where responsible parties have
been identified." Furthermore, it budgeted an additional $4 million for
the "cleanup of abandoned brownfield sites and for the establishment of
a revolving loan fund for loans to public and private entities to assist
in the cleanup of brownfield sites."

It is my understanding that the funding is likely to be included in the
final state budget. While $5 million doesn't go far in a state the size
of California, these budget items establish channels that may permit
continuing state support for the environmental recovery of brownfields
