This chapter investigates the major players in Westway's regulatory wars, highlighting the ways in which the opposing side was able to curtail the Westway plan's momentum despite the overwhelming resources available to the supporting side. The construction companies, unions, agency officials, lawyers, banks, and real estate interests that supported Westway had monetary interests at stake that were both individually large and in the aggregate even larger. Opponents had nothing nearing the supporters' monetary resources. However, the post-1970s world of environmental law and the open, transparent setting of administrative law transformed the regulatory process applicable to a project like Westway. In addition, the skills and endurance of citizen participants and their lawyers determined the disputed regulatory action's fate.
