Environmental Regulation,Provincial Legislation and Pollution Emission in China

Bao Quna;Shao Mina;Yang Dalib;Nankai University;University of Chicago;  
The key issue of evaluating the outcome of environmental regulation is the endogenous problem of regulation policy. Taking 84 cases of passing of local regulation law among 31 provinces in China as a program study,this paper adopts the difference-in-difference method to investigate how provincial environmental legislation affects the local pollution emission in China. It finds that environmental law helps to decrease the local pollution emission only for those provinces that have stricter enforcement of laws. On the contrary,there is no significant pollution abatement effect if only an environmental law is passed. Such results remain robust while considering the time lag effect,different types of pollutants and the choice of different comparison groups. Our study shows the importance of the enforcement of law for environmental regulation in China.
