U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) recently hosted a conference call to discuss his support of the Brownfields Utilization, Investment, and Local Development Act of 2013. Brown said the bill, introduced in March, would modernize and improve the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Brownfields Program by "providing additional tools and resources to communities working to redevelop brownfields." In connection with the bill, Brown's office released a county-by-county list of Ohio brownfield sites that although admittedly incomplete (because site owners are not required to inform the EPA), nonetheless includes more than 250 brownfields in Ohio. For more, read the full press release and county-by-county list.
