The purpose of this, the Board's first Advisory, is to evaluate the merits of economic and market-based incentives to finance environmental improvements. Each strategy considered in this Advisory is based on the recognition of a diminishing federal role in the direct funding of environmental facilities and an increasing reliance on market mechanisms to achieve environmental goals. Whether and to what extent these strategies are approriate from EPA's perspective remains strictly a matter of Administration policy.
