President Signs Brownfields Bill
"The law I sign today addresses the problem of land which has already been developed, and then abandoned. . . One of the best ways to arrest urban sprawl is to develop brownfields, and make them productive pieces of land, where people can find work and employment. By one estimate, for every acre of redeveloped brownfields, we save four and a half acres of open space."
