During its two-year term, the 110th Congress did not finalize very much with direct application to the brownfield marketplace. However, Congress continued to fund brownfield programs. In addition, the two bailouts that passed in 2008—the foreclosure assistance and the Wall Street rescue plan—provide opportunities for creative state, local, and private brownfield reuse to promote brownfield revitalization efforts. The Wall Street rescue plan even includes significant new incentives for “green” construction and development that could play a critical role in brownfield projects. One of the 111th Congress’s first major tasks will be to finalize appropriations for FY09, deferred by the outgoing Congress.
