Buffalo, NY – U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a member of the Environment and Public Works Committee, and Congressman Brian Higgins will announce a new bipartisan effort to cleanup and rebuild on brownfield sites. The Brownfields Utilization, Investment and Local Development (Build) Act, would jumpstart development efforts and provide additional resources for sites in need of redevelopment. The measure would allow local municipalities and non-profit organizations access to more money, tools and resources as they work toward project completion as well as help to create and sustain jobs.
