Title: LLW (Low-Level Waste) Notes, special edition, Volume 13, Number 3, April 1998

This special edition of LLW Notes focuses upon the federal government`s attempts to implement environmental justice policies through a variety of mechanisms, including the federal licensing process; the formation of a federal advisory committee; the filing of an amicus curiae brief in a federal court case; and the administrative complaint process under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act. In the absence of clearly defined criteria for implementing the environmental justice concept, an examination of the individual mechanisms being used by the federal government can indicate the eventual scope of federal environmental justice initiatives. Also contained in this issue is a chart depicting the administrative complaints concerning environmental justice that have been filed with the US Environmental Protection Agency under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act. The chart lists information for only those complaints that have been filed with EPA, which is the lead federal agency for environmental justice. EPA has received the vast majority of environmental justice administrative complaints.
