WASHINGTON (Jan. 16, 2009) -- U.S. Senators Benjamin L. Cardin and Barbara A. Mikulski (Both D-MD) this week urged the Chairman and Ranking Republican on the Senate Appropriations Committee to include shovel-ready environmental cleanups at active military bases in the pending economic recovery/stimulus package. In a letter to Chairman Daniel Inouye (D-HI) and Ranking Member Thad Cochran (R-MS), Senators Cardin and Mikulski pointed out the urgency of cleaning up hazardous sites at installations like Fort Meade in Anne Arundel County and Indian Head Naval Base in Charles County, as well as the cost-savings, health benefits and job creation generated by these projects.

"The immediate environmental and economic impact of cleaning up hazardous sites like Fort Meade and Indian Head cannot be underestimated," said Senator Cardin, a member of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee. "As the Congress reviews a wide range of projects that will help our communities and create jobs, I urge my colleagues to look carefully at these urgent clean-up sites that are ready-to-go as soon as funds are available."
