You are a member of a community planning committee. The committee is reminding local citizens about recently enacted environmental laws. You are responsible for developing an infographic to showcase one of these new laws. The infographic will be displayed at the next community meeting in the community center.
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) website contains information concerning laws and regulations that impact the environment. Search this EPA website to choose one law to focus on. https://www.epa.gov/laws-regulations

- Present the major players and the stakeholders (Who is involved and who is impacted by the new law?)
- Examine the impact to the economy (Does the law help or hinder the economy and why? Do the benefits outweigh the costs?)
- Identify the controversy surrounding the law (differences in opinion)
- Your infographic should be clear and organized. References should be in APA format
