BCONE Regulatory Committee

The BCONE Regulatory Committee enhances connection and communication among state environmental regulatory agencies with the primary objective to promote the inter-state communication of brownfields-focused regulatory issues, concerns, and approaches to guidance.  The committee supports brownfields redevelopment as a mechanism for positive societal impact.  Sharing information about successful practices with stakeholders across the brownfields redevelopment community will maximize the benefits of local, State, and Federal brownfields resources.
