The Lesson Of The Red Squirrel: Consensus And Betrayal In The Environmental Statutes, William H. Rodgers, Jr. Jan 1989

The Lesson Of The Red Squirrel: Consensus And Betrayal In The Environmental Statutes, William H. Rodgers, Jr.

Articles

The subjects of legislation and legislative change are undergoing a revival of sorts in United States' law schools. The academic community has offered a variety of theoretical visions on the nature of legislation—purposive and rational, irrational and political, the accidental outcome of competing interests, the imperfect product of high philosophy; the legislative process—formal and ritualistic, markets and auctions, plots and cabals, or publicregarding negotiations; and the individual legislators themselves—ritual players, auctioneers, maximizers of political gain, profiteers, and philosopher kings in shiny suits.

Despite impressive gains, these goals have not been achieved. There have been painful failures, compounded by the mounting costs of environmental protection. While the need for environmental protection is generally accepted, the effectiveness and efficiency of regulation based on the legislation of the 1970s has been questioned in the 1980s ...
