Reviews - What do customers think about Out of Bounds and Out of Control: Regulatory Enforcement at the EPA?
A Tale of Environmental Fiction Sep 13, 2003
I had hoped this book would attempt to answer some of the problems with EPA enforcement, such as why there is a lack of funding for key environmental cleanups. It did not, instead it created a fictional account of the state of America's environment.You would think that all of America had clean air and clean water and EPA was making very clean industries work very hard to clean up nothing, Total fiction. What I had hoped for was an honest assessments as to why EPA's budget does not match the level of monitoring and enforcement needed to keep our waterways, and ecosystems clean. I can not recommend this book.
Strongly advocates EPA reforms Nov 14, 2002
Out Of Bounds, Out Of Control: Regulatory Enforcement At The EPA James V. DeLong (Senior Fellow, Project on Technology and Innovation, Competitive Enterprise Institute, Washington, D.C.) is a straightforward survey and analysis of the enforcement activities of the Environmental Protection Agency, and comes up with documented conclusion regarding the EPA's miserable deficiency record. Taking the stand that the EPA's enforcement provisions interpret its power too broadly, blurs separation of governmental powers, and does not comply with the rule of law, Out Of Bounds, Out Of Control strongly advocates EPA reforms and calls for EPA regulated industries to defend themselves more vigorously and overtly.
