Part of: North American Water and Environment Congress & Destructive Water


There are many philosophical and political forces of change in America today which are molding the environmental agenda of the 104th Congress. What is the proper role of the federal government? What is the proper balance of public good vs individual rights? and What are the implications to private property rights?

These principles can be seen in much of the legislation that is being considered in Congress and will have a significant impact on the programs and policies in place today.
