Others are taking notice of pending brownfield “closure” legislation

18 Oct 2010

A recent article at Mlive discussed the package of legislation pending in the Michigan Legislature which I’ve blogged about a number of times. As someone who has worked on this legislation, I can tell you – it isn’t perfect,  but my hope is that the Legislature doesn’t  focus  on the “cloud” and ignore the “silver lining” benefits that this law will provide.

If Michigan has  a lame duck session and this package becomes law, there are many property owners and prospective developers who will be ecstatic that there are more clearly defined end points for the MDNRE’s demands and that there will be someone watching over their shoulders to ensure that their requests are reasonable.  Not perfect, but a number of very positive steps forward!
