A New Day Dawns For Environmental Policy

A New Day Dawns For Environmental Policy

Free Market Reforms May Flow from Republican Victory
November 05, 2002

Washington, D.C., November 6, 2002—After yesterday’s election changed the balance of power in the U.S. Senate, the outlook for environmental initiatives in Congress has shifted dramatically.  A free market approach to resolving environmental problems is likely to be at the center of the agenda, as the Republicans begin to exercise the prerogatives of unified government.  <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />


Policy proposals on energy, chemical risks, clean air and other issues are poised to come up for approval in both houses of Congress in the months ahead.  During that time, many of the bills initially passed or favored by the Republican House of Representatives will now have a substantially increased chance of gaining approval and making their way to the President’s desk.  

For analysis on the changing future of environmental policy in Congress and around the country, contact the experts of the Competitive Enterprise Institute, called “the best environmental think tank in the country” by The Wall Street Journal.  And for the best information on global environmental trends, read CEI’s newest book, Global Warming & Other Eco-Myths, available by contacting CEI’s communications department at 202-3312-1010 or pr@cei.org.
