Report from the Workgroup on Contingency Planning and Emergency Response to the National Coordinators [open pdf - 61KB]
"On March 18, 1998, the Workgroup on Contingency Planning and Emergency Response met during the National Coordinators' Meeting (NCM) in San Diego, California. The Workgroup discussed the accomplishments of the Workgroup since the last NCM and the goals for the present year. The Workgroup members also had an in-depth discussion of the environmental indicators including further defining and refining the indicators, current databases available to measure the indicators, determining additional data needs, and a strategy for implementing the indicators." This paper reflects many of the results of those meetings, as well as framing the views of future legislation in the scope of increasing environmental concerns.
