In light of the recent changes to the MCP, the UST Program is reconvening the 21J Fee Schedule Task Force/Work Group to evaluate and make recommendations for revisions to the Appendix 3 – Reimbursement Fee Schedule. If you would like to participate in the Work Group, please contact either Gordon Bullard at bullardgh@dor.state.ma.us or Paul McNeil at PaulM@williamsonenv.com.  Meetings are expected to be held 1-2 times per month (commencing in August) at either the UST Program’s office in Boston or at the Williamson Environmental’s office in Shirley, MA.
