The report is divided into three discussion chapters, one chapter devoted to tables, and a chapter of State program summaries. Chapter II highlights the most noteworthy developments in State capabilities that emerged in comparing the 1995 information with the previous reports. An analytical overview of State superfund programs is provided in Chapter III. This overview examines statutes, program staffing and organization, sites, cleanup activities, cleanup policies and standards, public participation requirements, and enforcement tools. Chapter IV discusses the States' voluntary remediation programs and brownfields programs, a topic of particular interest and activity first covered in the 1993 Study. Chapter V presents detailed program information arranged in tables that facilitate comparisons among the 52 States. Chapter VI contains individual summaries of each State program. For the few States that do not have non-NPL cleanup programs, the summaries focus on their capabilities to address contaminated sites using other authorities and resources.
