Good article in this month's REASON magazine about the Sea Ranch coastal development, located in northern California. Their take is that California regulators actually "derailed" environmental progress in their actions over the years.
It is truly amazing to see (and have to comply to) all of the regulations when you run a business, such as a distribution warehouse. OSHA rules and regulations, mostly written in the 1970's, guide the way to being a safe employer. EPA does their part. Human Resource pros have jobs for life just keeping up with equal rights laws, immigration laws, FMLA laws, etc.
What do real Americans get from all this regulation? Safer workplaces. Cleaner air and water. More people-friendly organizations (because of forced by law). And a lot of expense to comply. We all pass those expenses on to you. Thanx!
