My column this month in the Legal Intelligencer / Pennsylvania Law Weekly takes stock of the intersection of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and environmental regulation and enforcement, part of what is often called "environmental justice."
On April 12, EPA issued a Draft Title VI Supplement to Plan EJ 2014. Plan EJ 2014 is EPA’s statement of its intentions for how to integrate environmental into environmental regulatory decisionmaking as required by Executive Order 12898. Plan EJ 2014 was the subject of Samantha Corson’s posting on this blog in September 2011, when the plan first appeared, which you can read by clicking here.
