Two identical bills that would provide 300 million dollars in grants to states and localities to establish revolving loan funds or pay planning and other costs to help redevelop so-called brownfields were recently introduced in the U.S. Senate and House. Supporters contend that the two measures would augment brownfields legislation signed into law in January 2002, which authorized up to 1.25 billion dollars over five years to help state, municipal, and Indian governments clean up contaminated former industrial sites. Legislators Carl Levin and Jack Quinn introduced similar legislation 2002, but the Senate did not consider the bill after the Environment and Public Works Committee approved it, and no action was taken on Quinn's bill.
