Abstract:

Congress admits that environmental cleanup costs liability threatens to crush our countrys environmental cleanup effort. If the current liability scheme is not changed, then private industries may not participate in the effort. Applying insurance industry principles to environmental cleanup costs liability will provide a firm foundation to reduce the risk of loss to the taxpayer, reduce cleanup costs, and stimulate private participation in the cleanup effort.
