Cuomo, Legislators Urged to Reform Toxic Site Cleanup Program

(Long Island, NY) Governor Cuomo started 2014 with Brownfield Cleanup Program reform near the top of his environmental and economic development agenda. With the Legislature preparing to adjourn this year's legislative session next week, advocates are urging the Governor, Assembly and Senate leaders to come together to enact common-sense reforms that will benefit our communities. The Senate and Assembly have introduced reform legislation, but there is still no bill from - or three-way talks led by - the Governor.

The current program’s instability - coupled with a lack of long-term resources for the state Superfund and other critical programs like the Brownfield Opportunity Areas (BOA) and Environmental Remediation Program that clean up toxic sites - leaves projects in limbo, adds dangerous blight to communities, and undermines the state’s economic development efforts.
