Abstract : It is hypothesized that OSHA nd EPA regulations have substantially added to the costs of weapon systems and delayed the completion of defense contracts. It is also hypothesized that these regulations will inhibit the capability of the affected contractors to surge in response to a national emergency. This paper investigates these hypotheses.
