THE EFFECT OF FEDERAL STANDARDS ON U.S. PUBLIC PORT DEVELOPMENT

This report presents the results of a survey that collected data on the costs imposed on local U.S. public ports by Federal regulations to promote environmental protection, employee health and safety, and cargo security during the period 1970-1976. This investigation was requested by the U.S. National Transportation Policy Committee of the American Association of Port Authorities and was completed with their advice and assistance. Five areas are covered in this report. Chapter I presents the background, objectives, and methodology employed in the survey. Chapter II gives an informational overview and description of the relevant Federal laws. Chapter III presents the cost data. Chapter IV outlines some of the additional remarks public port officials have made concerning mandated programs. And Chapter V concludes the report with five brief case studies of the implementation of various Federal programs in selected public ports.
