Mark, et al:

PEER stands for the Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research Center, a
consortium of 9 west coast Universities including U of W which prepared the
report I mentioned.
PEER's address is:
http://peer.berkeley.edu/news/1999october/ which provides excerpts of the
report
Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research Center
1301 So. 46th St.
Richmond, CA 94804-4698

The report I mentioned is "Adoption and Enforcement of Earthquake
Risk-Reduction Measures" by May, Feeley, Wood and Burby, No. 1999/04,
August, 1999.

PEER is funded by NSF, PG&E, California, California Energy Commission, UC,
UofW and Washington State more or less in that order of support.
