Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Michigan funds depleted
No state funds left for toxic cleanups

Muskegon Chronicle

LANSING -- The state Department of Environmental Quality has run out of 
money for toxic-site cleanups and brownfield-redevelopment projects.

"That's not good for public health and the environment and 
municipalities that want to reinvigorate contaminated areas in their 
community," DEQ Director Steven Chester said.

Cleanups and redevelopment projects have been funded for the past 20 
years by two statewide bonds, approved by voters in 1988 and 1998.
