The Nation

March 03, 1985

A Senate committee passed a bill that would add $2.2 billion to the Reagan Administration's funding request for the Superfund dump-cleanup program. The bill, approved by the Environment and Public Works Committee on a 13-1 vote, would authorize the Superfund program to spend $7.5 billion over the next five years, compared to the Administration proposal of $5.3 billion. The committee added two other provisions opposed by the Administration, one to establish a project to compensate victims of toxic wastes in abandoned dumps and one to permit anybody to sue the government to carry out provisions of the Superfund law.
