Implementation Opportunities for Economic Incentives for Environmental Pollution Control
Provides a comprehensive overview of the implementation opportunities in the United States at the Federal level for using economic incentives for environmental pollution control. The report concludes that there are opportunities for using a wide variety of approaches after examining three basic approaches that could be used to implement such incentives: (1) Use the authority that already exists in environmental laws, (2) make changes in individual environmental statutes as they come up for reauthorization, and (3) enact new legislation. With regard to approach (1), the report surveys six U.S. environmental laws: the Clean Air, Toxic Substances Control, Clean Water, Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know, Pollution Prevention, and Safe Drinking Water Acts. The advantages and disadvantages of various approaches to (2) and (3) are discussed.
