The Administrator of the EPA requested that analyses be conducted of the costs of environmental controls across three different sectors of the economy -- the agricultural, small business, and municipal government sectors. The analyses were to provide a critical self-examination of the collective effects EPA proposed actions will have on each of the sectors. The regulations examined were those expected to impose new costs in the 1988-1996 time period. As this was the Agency's first attempt to examine the cumulative economic impacts of projected regulations, some of which are in the early stages of regulatory development, the findings in each study are best considered as preliminary. The report summarizes the findings presented in each of the individual reports. In addition, it discusses the possible policy recommendations that could be considered in light of the findings of each analysis.
