The following report was prepared to develop a lobbying and advocacy
strategy to support the continuation of the Hennepin County Environmental
Response Fund. This report will give background information on brownfield
redevelopment and the history and purpose of the Environmental Response Fund in
Hennepin County, Minnesota. The fund currently is in danger of losing its funding
mechanism. We will argue why this is a problem and who why the program must be
extended past its January 1, 2013 sunset date. We lay out an advocacy strategy for
the removal or extension of the sunset date from current law.
This report was prepared for Hennepin County Environmental Services by
John Brosnan, Peter Hamma, and Amy Kafut, students at the Humphrey School of
Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota.
