Abstract

The devolved nature of environmental regulation provides an excellent opportunity for estimating the effects of regulation on employment, by generating rich variation in regulation across regions and over time. We exploit this variation using direct measures of regulation and plant data. We estimate the employment effects of an unprecendent increase in air quality regulation in the Los Angeles region, using unregulated plants in other regions, industries and years for comparison.
