Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Pennsylvania funding shortfall
Funding shortfall could halt site cleanups

Bucks County Courier Times (PA)
December 30, 2004

Like the ongoing SEPTA funding crisis, Harrisburg lawmakers have another
mess on their hands - this time over hazardous waste. 

About $30 million must materialize from somewhere, or state cleanup of
these blemished sites will come to a halt. Among them are eight Bucks
County sites, where industries and individuals have walked away leaving
groundwater and residential wells polluted with carcinogenic
trichloroethylene (TCE) and tetrachloroethene (PCE), among other toxins. 

The shortfall in the state's Hazardous Sites Cleanup Fund occurred after
Harrisburg lawmakers killed the governor's Growing Greener II bond, an
$800 million cacophony of environmental programs ranging from open space
preservation to smart growth initiatives and hazardous waste cleanup.
