Brownfield Amendments – Last week, Darren Suarez, The Business Council’s director of environmental and energy programs, gave testimony at a joint legislative budget hearing to support extending and updating the state’s brownfield cleanup and tax incentive program. While we support a number of reform provisions included in the Executive Budget, we raised concerns about overly restrictive criteria for future redevelopment credits that were included in the proposal. Our full testimony is available here. We continue to seek member input on brownfield reform proposals. Staff contact: Darren Suarez
