ECONOMIC LAW ENFORCEMENT. VOLUME IV. STRENGTHENING ENVIRONMENTAL LAW ENFORCEMENT: ILLEGAL FILLING
The report is part of a set which has been prepared by the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection, describing a promising approach to the enforcement of environmental laws now being implemented and tested in Connecticut. The new approach, through the use of administratively imposed civil penalties, uses economic incentives that can be adjusted to meet different levels of resistance or cooperation. At most, the penalty to a violator would not exceed the cost of meeting his environmental requirements. It thus removes the economic advantage of deferring clean up activities without being unduly harsh.
