Federal environmental regulations have experienced significant growth in the 1970s. The costs of these regulations are an issue of intense interest and controversy to both industry and the government. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has routinely developed estimates of pollution control costs and their economic impact for every major regulation. It often has been suggested that EPA compare its cost forecasts with actual expenditure data. The purpose of this report is to compare estimates of pollution abatement costs prepared by EPA, by EPA contractors, by industry, and by independent groups with reported expenditures.
