Subject: [RNPROF] The Environment, Health and the Future - 2009 Policy Summit
Reply-To: "Field, R W"

If in the Midwest, please urge your state legislators to attend





The Environment, Health and the Future - 2009 Policy Summit
January 29-31 – Blackstone Hotel in Chicago

Superfund Basic Research Program
National Conference of State Legislatures



The overarching goal of the workshop is to translate research into knowledge that is important to legislators in the center of the country. The University of Iowa and the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) are co-sponsoring this workshop, primarily through the Iowa Superfund Basic Research Program (isbrp). The goal is to bring science to the process of creating state environmental policy on the following issues: 1. Polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) in the Great Lakes region and new chemicals; 2. Healthy Homes and Buildings-lead, radon, energy efficiency and regulations. 3. Adaptation to climate change through flood preparation and renewable energy production.
