"Incentives for Self-Policing: Discovery, Disclosure, Correction and Prevention of Violations," has been in effect since 1995. It reflects input from industry, trade associations, state environmental programs, and public interest groups. The Audit Policy is designed to provide incentives for regulated entities to come into compliance with the federal environmental laws and regulations.

In addition, EPA has developed a series of ...

Laws Stacked Against Hawaii Property Owners, | Hawaii Reporter
- Instead of relying on state laws to protect property owners, Hawaii law enforcement officers are using state and federal statutes to stack the law against them.  Police officers can seize your car, your cash or your boat if they merely suspect the property was involved in a crime — and they don’t even have to prove it.  In most cases, to get your property back you must prove the property is innocent.  Un-American?  You bet, but it wasn’t always this way. According to a new Institute for Justice report titled,  Policing for Profit: The Abuse of Civil Asset Forfeiture , “Modern civil forfeiture exploded ... market research, surveys and trends
The Corporate Income Tax Investor Enemy Number Two | POLITICAL VIEW
The Investor’s Eye view of politics is a simplistic, practical, dot-connecting approach to sorting things out so that win/win change can be considered. Real World politics is not concerned with such things, and that is one of the most serious problems facing investors today. As outlined in Investment Politics 2008, there are at least ten issues that require government action if we are to maintain our competitive position in the World Economy. Most of these are interrelated and need to be acted upon simultaneously… thus causing a major political dilemma. Politicians are much more interested in talking about change ... market research, surveys and trends

In 1995, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a final policy, "Incentives for Self-Policing: Discovery, Disclosure, Correction, and Prevention of Violations."

A Fault in Reg Reform: Deciding Who's Accountable When Things Go Wrong
A Senate hearing in March 2009 about the debacle at American International Group Inc. dispelled two oft-repeated myths. The first was that AIG's notorious derivatives operation had fallen between the regulatory cracks. An hour and 17 minutes into the testimony, the acting director of the Office of Thrift Supervision, Scott Polakoff, offered up that it was his agency, as the consolidated company's regulator, that was responsible for the financial products unit. In doing so, he knocked down the second, arguably more pervasive myth: that no one in Washington would ever willingly accept accountability for anything. ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Yes. The ISPs have been pushing for the ability to restrict bandwidth and services and charge a premium. There is no need for that. The technology is expanding at such a rate that there is no reason for Internet companies to need to do choke bandwidth or restrict service. They want to control content also. They want their sites and partners to show up faster in your browser than the competitions. The Internet "tubes" technology is getting "fatter" and faster by the day. Letting them regulate themselves will only allow them to minimize the investment they make in new technology, charge a premium for outdated service and ...
