Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP)

Letter from Gardiner to Gov. Chiles

Washington, D.C. 20460
MAR 19 1996

Governor Lawton Chiles
State of Florida
Tallahassee, Florida 32399-0001

Dear Governor Chiles:

On the behalf of Administrator Browner, I want to thank you for your letter of February 7, 1996, in support of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) proposal to participate in the Project XL pilot program. As you suggest in your letter, we are certainly looking for XL proposals that provide strategies for environmental protection that are "better, smarter, faster, and cheaper" than the existing system.

We have begun to review the (FDEP) proposal and will make a decision shortly. While we have not completed our review, the FDEP proposal shows tremendous promise. We share your enthusiasm for Project XL and for forging a new relationship with the State of Florida.

Given your interest in Project XL proposals submitted by companies located in the State of Florida, you may be aware that the Berry Corporation proposal has been selected to enter negotiation of a final project agreement. We are also currently negotiating a final project agreement with Anheuser-Busch for a pilot at a brewery in Jacksonville, Florida.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact Chris Knopes, director of Project XL, at (202) 260-9298. Once again, thank you for your interest in Project XL.


David Gardiner
Assistant Administrator
