This is the October 19, 2011 oversight hearing on "the Brownfield's Program--Cleaning Up and Rebuilding Communities" held before the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Superfund, Toxics and Environmental Health of the Committee on Environment and Public Works. From the opening statement of Frank Lautenberg: "Brownfields are blighted properties that have been a drag on local economies because of contamination or the mere perception of contamination. Often, these are abandoned industrial sites where parents don't want their kids to play, and few businesses will take the chance to locate in one of these sites. Now, the EPA started its Brownfields program more than a decade ago to transform these community eyesores into community assets. Since then, EPA has cleared up more than 600 Brownfields in communities across our Country, putting more than 20,000 acres back to productive use." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: David R. Lloyd, Mick Cornett, Elizabeth Spinelli, Aaron Scheff, E. Evans Paull, and Marjorie Buckholtz
