EPA to End Support of Voluntary Disclosures?

This just in from Seyfarth Shaw:

The U.S. EPA’s Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance has issued its draft guidance on the Fiscal Year 2013 enforcement program […] The FY 2013 Draft Guidance identifies EPA’s intent to significantly cut back traditional federal enforcement strategies across all major federal environmental programs, and to eliminate the voluntary disclosure program long relied upon by industry to disclose violations discovered during compliance audits.

You can find a copy of the draft guidance here.
