Anatomy of environmental regulation.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Describes the phenomenon of environmental permit proliferation, the state response to it, and two methods for further changes in the administration of permits to mitigate the complexity of the process. Two administrative models could achieve greater simplicity in permitting: 1) permit sequencing which involves ordering permits during the review process from the more comprehensive in scope (in terms of information and environmental analysis requirements) to the more specific, which would avoid repetitive analysis; 2) use a high volume permit as a 'pivotal' which would act as a screen for the review of other permits.-from ASCE Publications Abstracts
