New Jersey Gov. Aggressively Pursues Privatized Site Cleanup

"If there is one policy left over from the Corzine administration that has been fully and enthusiastically embraced by Gov. Chris Christie, it is a program privatizing the cleanup of the tens of thousands of contaminated waste sites in New Jersey.

Dubbed the Licensed Site Remediation Professionals (LSRP) program, it was passed by the legislature despite bitter opposition from most environmental groups and signed into the law by the Democratic Governor this past year. Its proponents say it is the best way to deal with the more than 16,000 contaminated waste sites in New Jersey, most of which have been left fallow for years."
