CZMA at 50 Episode 3: Into the weeds – what does each section of the CZMA do? | Capitol Beach
Diving deep into the weeds of what makes the CZMA tick.
Like most major legislation, the Coastal Zone Management Act includes multiple sections that are often just referred to by number (306, 306a, 309, 310, etc.) by the federal and state staff charged with administering the law. Joelle Gore with NOAA’s Office for Coastal Management and Braxton Davis, the coastal zone manager for North Carolina, explain what some of the most critical sections of the CZMA do, and explain how coastal resources are directly affected by the details of the law.
