Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Michigan state brownfields funding
Brownfield funds dwindle
Current funds to lapse by year's end; state officials look for new sources

LANSING - Michigan's stream of money for contaminated-site cleanups is 
about to run dry.

That has state officials eyeing the potential of a new environmental 
bond issue that could go on the ballot this fall and in part provide 
some $100 million annually in cleanup funding.

The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality says that money - 
mostly from Michigan's $675 million 1998 environmental bond - will be 
depleted by year's end, and, without a new source of funds, ongoing 
cleanups around the state will halt and new projects won't start.
