|WHEREAS,||section 334 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1997, Pub. L. No. 104-201, allows deferral of the requirement that remedial action be conducted before contaminated federal property can be transferred, pursuant to section 120(h)(3)(A)(ii)(I) of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act ("CERCLA"); and||
|WHEREAS,||under the law, this requirement can be deferred where a Governor (at a site not included on U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) National Priorities List), or the EPA Administrator with the concurrence of the Governor (at a site included on U.S. EPA's National Priorities List), finds that the subject property is "suitable for transfer"; and|
|WHEREAS,||early transfer, prior to the completion of all remedial activities at federal installations, may spur economic recovery and job creation; and|
|WHEREAS,||early transfer may be in the best interests of the state provided that it is done in a manner that is protective of human health and the environment, and in accordance with CERCLA section 120 and this Executive Order.|
NOW, THEREFORE, I, Roy Romer, Governor of Colorado, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the State of Colorado, DO HEREBY ORDER THAT:
|GIVEN under my hand and the|
|Executive Seal of the State of Colorado|
|this 18th day of Day of June, 1998.
