Political Coalitions to Conserve Coastal Barriersby Susan Essig, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Hadley, United States,
Abstract: The Coastal Barrier Resources Act (CBRA) (P.L. 97-348) (16 U.S.C. 3501 et. seq.) has frequently been cited as a model Federal environmental statute. Despite this reputation, relatively little has been written regarding the history of this statute, including the 1990 amendments. This paper provides background on the enactment of the statute and the Coastal Barrier Improvement Act (P.L. 101-591) and emphasizes the political coalitions involved.
