ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the strengths and shortcomings of enforcement at one federal regulatory agency, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), during the Administration of U.S. President Bill Clinton from 1993 to 2001. The election of Clinton as president of the United States, in November 1992, gave rise to high hopes among environmental advocates. The coming to power of Clinton's Administration, coupled with the continued dominance of U.S. Congress by the Democratic party, created a very real prospect that environmental matters would once again be afforded a high priority in Washington D.C.
