Suppose you are an administrator at the Environmental Protection Agency. It has been reported that a plant in a small town is in violation of the environmental laws. If you enforce the laws’ requirements, the plant will be forced to shut down. The plant is the major source of employment for the town, and its closure would impose severe economic hardships. Should that fact play a role in regulatory enforcement?
I say that this information should be consdiered becuace the closing of the plant can affect the community as a whole.
I think you're right, but that plant should be assisted in fixing their problems and bringing them in compliance with environmental laws. The last thing this country needs is more people losing their jobs.
