HR 543 IH 101st CONGRESS 1st Session H. R. 543 To amend the Coastal Zone Management Act of 1972 regarding activities directly affecting the coastal zone. IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES January 19, 1989 Mr. PANETTA (for himself and Mr. IRELAND) introduced the following bill; which was referred to the Committee on Merchant Marine and Fisheries A BILL To amend the Coastal Zone Management Act of 1972 regarding activities directly affecting the coastal zone. Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That section 307(c)(1) of the Coastal Zone Management Act of 1972 (16 U.S.C. 1456(c)(1)) is amended to read as follows: `(c)(1)(A) Each Federal agency conducting or supporting an activity that directly affects the coastal zone shall conduct or support that activity in a manner which is fully consistent with the enforceable, mandatory policies of approved State management programs, unless-- `(i) the conduct or support of the activity in that manner is prohibited by applicable Federal law; or `(ii) a circumstance arising after a management program (or an amendment thereto) is approved, and unforeseen at the time of such approval, presents a substantial obstacle to the achievement by the agency of full consistency in conducting or supporting the activity. In the event that achievement by a Federal agency of full consistency is prevented pursuant to clause (i) or (ii), the agency may deviate from full consistency only to the extent justified by clause (i) or (ii). `(B) For purposes of subparagraph A, a Federal agency activity shall be treated as one that `directly affects the coastal zone' if the activity-- `(i) is within the coastal zone, on Federal lands excluded from the coastal zone under section 304(1), landward of the coastal zone, or seaward of the coastal zone, including oil and gas and mineral lease sale activities on the Outer Continental Shelf and the sale, transfer or lease of other Federal lands; and `(ii) produces or may produce significant effects on any land or water use or natural resource of the coastal zone.'.
