Senate OKs Bill to Clean Up Sites 
By JOHN HEILPRIN, Associated Press Writer 

WASHINGTON (AP) - The government would assist in cleaning up more than 500,000
abandoned industrial sites across the nation under a bill passed Wednesday by
the Senate. 

The legislation, approved by a 99-0 vote, would provide $200 million a year for
the cleanups and encourage developers to build on the sites by insulating them
from future Superfund lawsuits if additional toxic wastes are found. 

Developers have been reluctant to buy the mildly contaminated ``brownfields,''
many of them in inner cities, fearing the Environmental Protection Agency (news
- web sites) would step in and subject them to Superfund liability.
