ENVIRONMENTAL REGULATORY PROCESS: DOES IT WORK? DREDGING U.S. PORTS. ADMINISTRATIVE INITIATIVES - MARITIME ADMINISTRATION

This paper discusses the Maritime Administration's initiatives in the dredging regulatory process as they are being accomplished through the Interagency Working Group on the Dredging Process. The Group was established on October 28, 1993, by Secretary of Transportation Federico Pena to review the permit process and identify ways of improving application coordination, information gathering, criteria review, and the overall sequencing of approvals. At its first meeting the Group expanded its scope by including Federally authorized projects (which do not necessarily require permits) and the dredge disposal process, a major focus of concern. The discussion outlines the approach being followed by the Group, describes the Group's outreach program to receive information from interested parties, and elaborates on the ground rules under which the Group will operate.
