Abstract: This Volume I presents white-collar crime statutes bearing on these four regulatory areas for each of the 50 States, the District of Columbia, and five U.S. territories. These volumes are intended to provide guidance for attorneys and legislators. They report data through October 2016. The National White Collar Crime Center defines a white-collar offense as “any violation of law committed through nonviolent means, involving lies, omissions, deceit, misrepresentation, or violation of a position of trust, by an individual or organization for personal or organizational benefit.” The regulatory list in this report was limited to categories most commonly viewed as areas where white-collar offenses are likely to be committed.. For each State, the District of Columbia, and five territories, the report provides statute numbers for legislation that involves the following enforcement actions pertaining to white-collar crimes in banking and finance, environmental harms, worker safety, and Medicaid fraud. The various enforcement actions are distinguished as administrative/regulatory, civil, and criminal. The legislation numbers are listed under the four categories of white-collar crime.
