5/16/2005 - DOD news and House Reps you need to call

The Department of Defense (DoD) is trying to harmful provisions to this yearís (FY06) Defense Authorization bill. One provision could cap DOD cleanup liabilities at contaminated properties transferred to third parties after the Base Realignment and Closure Process (BRAC). DoDís proposal would make one federal account the ďsole sourceĒ of cleanup funds at these properties. If pollution problems arise after the account is closed, cleanups could be slowed down, redevelopment delayed and costs increased on communities. The same provision could also weaken or eliminate certain cleanup standards at DoDís Superfund sites, some of the nationís most heavily contaminated toxic waste sites. A second provision could allow any federal agency to take a case under the Safe Drinking Water Act or Clean Air Act out of state court and put it into federal court. DoDís proposal seeks to evade local judges who are experts in state law, live in local communities and might best understand local contamination problems. Problems with contamination could continue as cases stall in already overburdened federal courts. Please call these representatives and ask them to reject DoDís effort to avoid cleaning up its dangerous contamination. Main Points 1. DoD should pay for cleanups at closed and transferred military bases. There is no reason to restrict the source of cleanups funds to one federal account. 2. DoD should follow all cleanup standards in order to protect military families and nearby communities, not fight to weaken protections. 3. Federal agencies should not be allowed to eliminate local judges from deciding cases that seek to protect local citizens. Main Representatives - Saxton, Jim, (NJ) - Simmons, Robert, (CT) - Lobiando, Frank, (NJ) - Bradely, Jeb, (NH) - Schwartz, Joe, (MI) - McHugh, John, (NY)
