Excerpt: “During the Environment Subcommittee hearing the previous day, Members specifically asked you about the list, and despite many of the sites included being of particular concern to Committee Members, we did not receive any indication from you that these sites would be included. The Superfund cleanup program already involves a significant amount of process, and it is not clear how creating another list of sites will expedite cleanups. Furthermore, it is not clear how the sites on the ‘Top-21 List’ were selected.”
