Part 1: Preservation and Development
Part 2: Costs for Meeting Environmental Standards
Certain environmental laws prohibit the EPA from considering the costs of meeting various standards when the levels of the standards are set. Pollution control is an obvious example of where the EPA has certain standards for society.
