§2285.  Findings and purpose

A.  The legislature hereby finds that there are numerous former  commercial and industrial sites that are contaminated with hazardous pollutants and that these sites are idle and unproductive because they have not been remediated.  It is found that the owners of land with hazardous waste sites are reluctant to initiate or be involved in the remediation of these sites because of their potential present and future liability.  Further, it is found that many such sites would be remediated and returned to productive use if those landowners who voluntarily clean up such sites were granted certain limitations on their liability as a result of such remediation activities.

B.  It is the purpose of this Part to implement the policy of Article IX, Section 1 of the Constitution of Louisiana to protect, conserve, and replenish the environment by affording limitations of liability for the voluntary cleanup of contaminated sites.

Acts 1995, No. 1092, §1, eff. July 1, 1996.
