Abstract

Criticism of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is hardly virgin terrain for US public policy analysts. Established by Richard Nixon in response to public anxiety over air pollution and its possible relationship to an increased incidence of cancer, the agency’s jurisdiction has broadened far beyond its original mission to a seemingly inexhaustible list, including the regulation of noise pollution and food safety.
