EVSP411 Environmental Policy, Regulation, and law
University Plagiarism Policy: The University System supports and promotes academic honesty and personal integrity. Any form of academic dishonesty has no place in higher education. The University System does not tolerate dishonest efforts by its students. Students who are guilty of academic dishonesty can expect to be penalized. Any student who knowingly assists another student in dishonest behavior is equally responsible. An additional violation of the standards of academic honesty within a course may result in dismissal from the University System.
Running head: BRIEF TITLE OF PAPER 1
Repeat Title Here
Begin text under the title and go right into the paper. Indent paragraphs. Use section titles or numbers to differentiate between multiple questions; especially on the mid-term and final assessment. Review APA style on formatting first level headings (e.g., center bold, title case capitalization – this does not mean all caps), second level headings (e.g., flush left, bold, title case capitalization), etc.
There is no minimum or maximum writing requirement. Directions usually state “thoroughly explain or discuss”. This equates to roughly 1.5 – 2 pages per assignment. There is no penalty for writing more than 2 pages. However, assignments less than 1.5 pages tend to have points deducted for not being sufficiently detailed, though in part this depends on student writing style. Also, remember to cite in APA format within the text as well as the reference page that follows.

Do not change this font. It is to be Times Roman Numeral 12 throughout the paper and including references. .

Develop an essay that evaluates the Pollution Prevention Act of 1990 that focuses on the barriers to effective implementation of the act. Use the reading attached as the basis for your essay, but develop it further with additional research. Clearly identify barriers, but do not just summarize the barriers; develop some recommendations for how this act could be changed (if it needs to be) to be more effective. Think about the difference in our regulatory philosophy between then and now, or in the economy, or whatever comes to mind as you read it. Use data, cases, and examples to support your suggestions and positions.
Using APA style, cite all sources used both within and at the end of your answer. A fully developed response should go beyond your textbook and required readings (although may include them), have multiple citations from valid sources (e.g., no wiki-anything) and should avoid direct quotes from others. Present your own synthesis.
You must submit your essay as an attachment. Your essay should be about two pages and supported by at least two scholarly references.
This course uses automatic plagiarism checking software (Turnitin). You may submit your work up to three times prior to the deadline to check your similarity scores (aim for a green or yellow flag). It takes roughly 15 minutes for the system to process your submission and show the score.
