Despite the reports that U.S. Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott has promised to prevent the passage of any Brownfields legislation, the bipartisan Brownfields bill, S. 2700, is still alive. In fact, the list I just received of the bill's co-sponsors (see below) includes 49 Senators from both parties. The bill would preserve, enhance, and fund EPA's national Brownfields initiatives, but it's a compromise, falling short of the language sought by environmental and environmental justice organizatinos. Still, S. 2700 probably represents the only chance that Congress will enact legislation this year dealing with environmental cleanuip. Lenny Siegel Cosponsors of S. 2700 Democrats: Akaka (HI) Baucus (MT) Breaux (LA) Bryan (NV) Cleland (GA) Daschle (SD) Dodd (CT) Durbin (IL) Edwards (NC) Feinstein (CA) Graham (FL) Harkin (IA) Johnson (SD) Kennedy (MA) Kerrey (NE) Kerry (MA) Lautenberg (NJ) Leahy (VT) Levin (MI) Lieberman (CT) Mikulski (MD) Moynihan (NY) Reed (RI) Reid (NV) Robb (VA) Sarbanes (MD) Schumer (NY) Wyden (WA) Republicans: Abraham (MI) Ashcroft (MO) Brownback (KS) Campbell (CO) Chafee (RI) Collins (ME) DeWine (OH) Fitzgerald (IL) Gorton (WA) Grams (MN) Grassley (IA) Helms (NC) Hutchinson (AK) Jeffords (VT) Lugar (IN) Mack (FL) Santorum (PA) Smith (NH) Smith (OR) Snowe (ME) Warner (VA) -- Lenny Siegel Director, Center for Public Environmental Oversight c/o PSC, 222B View St., Mountain View, CA 94041 Voice: 650/961-8918 or 650/969-1545 Fax: 650/968-1126 firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.cpeo.org ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ To read CPEO's archived Brownfields messages visit http://www.cpeo.org/lists/brownfields If this email has been forwarded to you and you'd like to subscribe, please send a message to email@example.com ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ___________________________________________________________ T O P I C A The Email You Want. http://www.topica.com/t/16 Newsletters, Tips and Discussions on Your Favorite Topics
