Legislation to Terminate Required 
Legislation Status 
How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The Defense Environmental Response Task Force provided recommendations to Congress and the Department of Defense on ways to expedite and improve environmental response actions at military installations being closed or realigned. By studying and monitoring the progress of environmental cleanup at closing installations, and the progress being made by Federal and State agencies in implementing the recommendations made in the past regarding environmental cleanup at closing installations, the Task Force was able to formulate appropriate advice and recommendations.
How is membership balanced?*The membership of the Task Force was specified in Section 125 of Public Law 102-380, the Military Constriction Appropriation Act for Fiscal Year 1993. The specified membership reflects Federal, State, and public interest views pertinent to carrying out environmental response actions at closing or realigning military installations.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The Defense Environmental Response Task Force was reconvened by Section 125 of Public Law 102-380, the Military Constriction Appropriation Act for Fiscal Year 1993. The statute specified that the Task Force shall remain standing until the date determined by the Secretary of Defense on which all base closure activities required under Title II of the Defense Authorization Amendments and Base Closure and Realignment Act (Public Law 100-526) are completed. The Task Force met two times during Fiscal Year 1998, and once during Fiscal Year 1999. No meetings were held in FY-2000 through 2003.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*A formal advisory committee composed of representatives of Federal and State agencies, as well as public interest groups was mandated by statute to develop recommendations on issues relating to environmental cleanup and response actions at closing or realigning military installations. The perspectives brought by the members of the Task Force in the analysis of the issues in an open forum reflected the diverse interest of stakeholders in both environmental cleanup and reuse of closing military installations.
Why close or partially close meetings?N/A
Recommendation RemarksNo legislation has been drafted to terminate this committee, and with future base closings on the current administration's agenda, the committee may be reactivated. The committee charter has lapsed because the committee has not met in over four years.
