Cleaning local hazardous waste sites should be a function of the states or local communities rather than the Federal government. Therefore the states might well assume an increasing share of Superfund taxes, which must be reauthorized in 1991. Any Superfund money remaining in the Federal Treasury could be put into a revolving state loan fund, as is the case currently with the Wastewater Treatment Plant federal grant program.
