Young introduces bill to speed up River Ridge development Layer of protection hopes to entice more growth By BRADEN LAMMERS News and Tribune (IN) April 21, 2012A House Resolution introduced by Rep. Todd Young, R-Ind., may help to speed up development at River Ridge Commerce Center.
Resolution 4407, known as the Base Redevelopment and Indemnification Correction Act, would help former military installations that were closed outside of the normal Base Realignment and Closure process receive protections against liability when businesses redevelop the sites.
While there are a handful of bases that the law would apply to, it would immediately help the former Indiana Army Ammunition Plant, said Trevor Foughty, a spokesman for Young.
"It will provide us some additional environmental protection and indemnification if some future tenant discovers some contamination," said River Ridge Executive Director Jerry Acy. "It puts a lot more urgency on the federal government to clean up, [if they] would discover anything after the fact. It's the same environmental protection given under a [military base] closure."
