Applying the 'three strikes you're out' principle to corporate crime, Pennsylvania's
"Applying the 'three strikes you're out' principle to corporate crime, Pennsylvania's Wayne Township passed a law in 1998 stating that any firm with three or more regulatory violations over 15 years is forbidden to establish operations in the community."
"In Pennsylvania for example, citizen groups are backing an amendment to the state's code calling for corporate charters to be limited for 30 years. A charter could be renewed, but only after successful completion of a review process during which the corporation must prove that it is operating in the public interest."
