This presentation highlights some of the context behind the contentious debate between environmentalists and U.S. builder/developer interests over the issue of "wetlands". The issue has undertones that reveal the tension between pro-growth and slow- or no-growth advocates. It also reveals some of the machinations of the policy process, especially the use of agency power and the court system to bypass the legislative process. The material from which this presentation is based comes from the excellent book, "Housing in the Twenty-First Century: Achieving Common Ground", written by Kent Colton.
