    sense of the senate regarding the environmental self-evaluation 
                               privilege

    (a) Findings.--The Senate finds that--
            (1) The intended effect of environmental protection 
        statutes passed over the past three decades is to improve and 
        protect the natural and human environment.
            (2) The President's National Performance Review concluded 
        that the environmental laws and regulations implemented over 
        the past decade have led to significant improvements in 
        environmental quality.
            (3) The National Performance Review further concludes that 
        many of these laws, however, place a very real cost burden on 
        local governments. Localities now struggle to comply with new 
        requirements of the Safe Drinking Water Act, the Resource 
        Conservation and Recovery Act, the Clean Water Act, the Clean 
        Air Act, and Superfund, with little or no prospect of 
        significant increases in Federal grants and only limited 
        availability of loans in the future.
            (4) The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates 
        that, by the year 2000, local governments will need to spend 
        nearly $44,000,000,000 annually to meet existing requirements.
            (5) The National Performance Review states: ``With the 
        opportunity to `reinvent' the way EPA works with State and 
        local governments, EPA has a chance to significantly increase 
        the effectiveness of our Nation's environmental programs.
            (6) The National Performance Review acknowledged that there 
        are numerous examples where the failure of EPA to devise better 
        ways to protect the environment affordably may result in just 
        the opposite of the intended effect.
            (7) To further the goals of protecting and improving the 
        natural and human environment, the States of Oregon, Indiana, 
        Kentucky and Colorado have passed laws establishing an 
        ``environmental self-evaluation privilege''.
            (8) The EPA is currently considering modifying its existing 
        environmental auditing policy.
    (b) Sense of the Senate.--It is the sense of the Senate that--
            (1) The National Performance Review is correct in stating 
        that EPA must recognize that increased regulatory flexibility 
        offers tremendous opportunity for positive institutional change 
        at Federal, State and local levels.
            (2) EPA must take advantage of these opportunities by 
        finding ways to allow flexibility without compromising 
        fairness, accountability and, above all, performance.
            (3) The EPA should seriously consider the ``environmental 
        self-evaluation privilege'', as enacted into law by the States 
        of Oregon, Indiana, Kentucky and Colorado, as a low-cost 
        opportunity to increase performance toward the intended effect 
        of environmental protection statutes to improve and protect the 
        natural and human environment.
