FEDERAL PORT POLICY IN THE U.S.
This volume is written for persons in the fields of port industry and management, coastal zone management, inland waterways and deep water coastal development and operations, environmental protection, public policy and administration. In this book, the authors argue that the continued adherence of the federal government to a port policy of doing nothing that in any way discriminates or affects competition among U.S. ports is unrealistic, unnecessary and wasteful. They point out that federal laws and regulations already affect competition among ports and that numerous federal agencies concerned with port activities operate within a fragmented framework and may duplicate each other's efforts. In concluding their study, the authors recommended a number of steps that would help bring order to the federal government's port activities. (No further information in article).
