Guidance on Economic Impact of Environmental Regs Issued

WASHINGTON, January 2, 2001 - Looking to create a system where all regulatory costs and benefits are treated on a consistent basis, the US Environmental Protection Agency has released its most far-reaching internal guidance on the economic impacts of environmental regulations and policies. Called, Guidelines for Preparing Economic Analyses, this framework will help federal policy makers who are required to develop environmental and health standards at the lowest cost.

For more information, the guidelines, and information on the office that developed them, are available at http://www.epa.gov/economics.
