Session 7

A Regulatory Thicket: Toxic and Hazardous Substances

Class Topics: 

  • The Rush to Regulate

  • Cradle to Grave Regulation (a good idea?)

  • The Regulatory Thicket

Readings:     

Chapter 7, Environmental Politics & Policy

Assignment:   

In writing this final short paper your task is to answer these questions: When is enough environmental regulation actually "too much?" Who ultimately chafes at additional regulation, who oversees the regulators and what are the economic consequences of "cradle to grave regulation." Be prepared to answer these questions and more as we explore the truly dense federal / state / local regulatory thicket.
