RE: Required P2 Plans



http://www.turi.org/PDF/NewThesisFinalSS.pdf

This paper by Heather Tenney of MA TURI looks at selected state
programs, comparing the effectiveness of voluntary and mandatory
approaches.  (Mandatory show greater progress).  The out of date
directory Melinda refers to might be NPPR's 1996 The Source: The
Ultimate Guide to State Pollution Prevention Programs.

A very recent paper is Lori Snyder's "Are Management-Based Regulations
Effective?: Evidence from State Pollution Prevention Programs", 2003,
Harvard Kennedy School of Government's Regulatory Policy Program.  (P2
planning requirements are the example of management-based regulation
examined, and the answer is Yes). Get her paper at:
http://www.courses.fas.harvard.edu/~ec2690hf/Past.Lectures/Snyder%20Pape
r.pdf

The Snyder paper refers to a 2000 paper by Maxwell, Lyon and Hackett
entited "Self-Regulation and Social Welfare: the Political Economy of
Corporate Environmentalism," Journal of Law & Economics, XLIII:583-617,
which she says compares states with any P2 legislation in place by 1991
to states without, and finds no statistically significant effect of the
legislation on changes in toxic releases of 17 key chemicals.  The
website of the Journal does not permit access to the article without
membership - anyone have a downloaded copy of this paper?

Tomas, I found 4 reports that may be of interest:
1. There is an NPPR white paper called "Facility P2 Planning
Requirements: An Overview of State Program Evaluations: the Nuts and
Bolts" that was done in 1997. There is a directory of state P2 programs,
which is out of date, but I can't put my finger on it. 2. Business
Roundtable did a "Benchmarking Study of P2 Planning" in 1998. 3. There's
a good GAO report on P2, "EPA Should Strengthen Its Efforts to Measure
and Encourage P2". 4. There's a report done by Michele Ochsner of
Rutgers called "Mandatory vs. Voluntary P2: An Evaluation and Comparison
of State Approaches" in which she looks at NJ, Texas and Illinois. I
will send you hard copies of all 4, Melinda Dower NJDEP

I have been told that there is a document summarizing the state programs
that require P2 Planning, and what the programs entail.  I looked on the
NPPR site and couldn't find it, does anyone have an idea/link?
