On January 11, 2002 President Bush signed the Small Business Liability Relief and Brownfields Revitalization Act into law (Public Law 107-118). The President and the U.S. Congress recognized in this new law the importance of federal partnerships in achieving the mutual goals of environmental protection and economic revitalization. Today, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and its partnering agencies under the Bush Administration confirm their commitment to work together by releasing the Brownfields Federal Partnership Action Agenda. The Brownfields Federal Partnership Action Agenda represents the focused efforts of over twenty federal agencies, making over one hundred commitments to work together in a timely manner to help communities more effectively prevent, assess, safely clean up, and sustainably reuse brownfields. The Action Agenda is a compilation of commitments that range anywhere from making funding and technical assistance to brownfields communities a budget priority, to changing policies to facilitate brownfields redevelopment, to launching a concerted effort to share program information with respective stakeholders, such as linking web sites.
