Abstract:     
The U.S. Constitution is not the sole constitutional influence on environmental law. Constitutions from nearly two dozen states contain a variety of environmental provisions. Among these provisions, one commonality stands out: They are seldom subject to substantive interpretation. The area of interest most relevant to practitioners lies within those constitutions that purport to provide a right to a quality environment.
