CLIFFORD P. CASE III APPOINTED TO U.S. ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY’S
NEGOTIATED RULEMAKING COMMITTEE
-- Designated Representative of the International Municipal Lawyers Association --
NEW YORK, April 29, 2003 –Clifford P. Case III, a partner at Wall Street law firm Carter Ledyard & Milburn LLP, has been appointed to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Negotiated Rulemaking Committee on All Appropriate Inquiry. Mr. Case will serve as the designated representative of the International Municipal Lawyers Association, made up of local government lawyers from all across the country.
EPA established the Negotiated Rulemaking Committee on All Appropriate Inquiry to recommend standards for investigation of brownfield sites. Under the Small Business Liability Relief and Revitalization Act, also known as the 2002 Brownfields Law, EPA is responsible for promulgating the standards by January, 2004. Parties who observe the standards will be shielded from most clean-up liability under the law. The standards will also apply to grant recipients using federal Brownfields funding to conduct site assessments.
As the IMLA designee on the Committee, Mr. Case will represent local government attorneys who must interpret the standards of the law to their municipalities. His role is to ensure that the interests of municipalities are taken into account during the development of brownfield assessment standards with respect to successful site redevelopment, limitation of local governments’ liability, and protection of public health and the environment.
Mr. Case has extensive background in Brownfields matters. He represents the City of Newburgh, New York in its fight against Central Hudson Gas & Electric Corp. to clean up a former manufactured gas plant that has contaminated city property and the Hudson River. He is Co-Director of its Environmental Practice Group, and has written and spoken extensively on environmental issues. He is joined on the Committee by representatives from all levels of government, developers, bankers, lenders, environmentalists, environmental justice representatives, and environmental professionals.
