"The vast economic development and construction in this country accompanied by a much greater scientific understanding of the environment and the impact of development on it has further polarized the environmental movement and developers. The regulatory agencies are left somewhere in the middle, attempting to keep pace with changing times and science, and it is being challenged from both the left and the right in court constantly."
An excerpt from Environmental Regulation and the Current Law - John F. Sawyer, Esquire
