Winning Issue » BROWNFIELD SITES


Many old factories, foundries, plants and other manufacturing facilities have been abandoned after outgrowing their usefulness, going out of business or succumbing to offshoring. Often polluted, these underutilized properties are called brownfield sites. These sites are usually contaminated with low levels of hazardous waste or pollution such as solvents, pesticides, lead and asbestos. The concentrations of these pollutants are too low to qualify as Superfund cleanup sites but the high cost of cleanup has prevented many local governments from doing so. Besides creating problems for the surrounding environment, these eyesores are blights on the landscape and obstacles to communities attempting to redevelop inner city areas.


Pending Legislation:
H.R.2002 - Brownfields Redevelopment Tax Incentive Reauthorization Act of 2015



Polling Options

  • I oppose reforming current brownfield sites policy and wish to defeat H.R.2002 - Brownfields Redevelopment Tax Incentive Reauthorization Act of 2015, and also wish to donate resources to the campaign committee of either Rep. Paul Ryan or Sen. Mitch McConnell
  • I support amending the Internal Revenue Code to extend tax incentives through 2019 for environmental remediation costs including the abatement or control of hazardous substances at a qualified contaminated site, and wish to pass H.R.2002 - Brownfields Redevelopment Tax Incentive Reauthorization Act of 2015, and also wish to donate resources to either the campaign committees of Rep. Paul Ryan (WI) and/or Rep. Elizabeth Esty (CT), or to an advocate group currently working with this issue
