EPA Cuts Back on Cases
By Kery Murakami

During the first 11 months of the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30, 81 people or businesses faced prosecution based on EPA investigations, according to data compiled by Syracuse University researchers. In fiscal 2011, there were 182 prosecutions, according to a report by the university's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, which tracks a variety of federal data. The number was 198 in fiscal 1998 under the Clinton administration, and 196 in Bush’s first year in 2001. Fewer cases follows a decline in the number of EPA investigators. The roster of EPA agents is down to 157 from 206 in 2010, according to the agency.
