Governor Schwarzenegger announced that he intends to sign a bill, SB 990 by Senator Sheila Kuehl (D-Santa Monica), specifying the basis of clean-up standards to be used at the Santa Susana Field Laboratory site, a former rocket engine test and nuclear research facility in Ventura County.

The Governor also announced that the Boeing Company, which owns the majority of the 2,850-acre field laboratory site, has signed a Letter of Intent with the California Environmental Protection Agency and Resources Agency regarding the transfer of the property to the state, after extensive cleanup and at no cost to the taxpayers.  

"I am pleased to announce this historic agreement will benefit the environment, nearby residents in Ventura County and the people of California," said Governor Schwarzenegger. "I would like to applaud Senator Kuehl for her leadership on this issue and commend the Boeing Company for working with officials to come up with this solution that will protect the health of residents in adjacent communities."
