An Ocean Blueprint for the 21st Century

Tuesday, September 21, 2004
The U.S. Commission on Ocean Policy released its final report - An Ocean Blueprint for the 21st Century. The 610-page report recommends establishment of a comprehensive and coordinated U.S. ocean policy. The report, like its earlier draft, is heavily weighted toward research, environmental protection, and state and local coordination. Sections relating to commercial activity on the water, such as carriage of goods and passengers, have been somewhat enhanced over the cursory treatment in the draft. President Bush issued a Statement in support of the work of the Commission, as did Admiral Tom Collins, Commandant, U.S. Coast Guard. The Senate Commerce Committee will conduct a Hearing on September 21 to review the report and its various recommendations. (HK Law)
