Existing state roles in transportation and water-port planning and their relationship to other planning activities are explored. A rationale for expanding states' water-port planning responsibility is discussed, and alternative approaches to developing a state water-port master plan and a description of the components of such a plan are presented. It is concluded that cooperation between state governments and local port agencies provides an effective political and operating mechanism for bridging the gap between national and local objectives.
