Texas Environmental Fines Dwarfed by Polluter Savings
What if you could pay a fine of $11,000 in order to save $123,000? And what if you could reduce that fine by promising remediation programs that no agency will monitor? Welcome to Texas, where environmental enforcement is hamstrung by state law, spartan funding for the Commission on Environmental Quality, and the Commission's easy-going relationships with industry.
