Released:
February 23, 2005
Updated:
February 19, 2012


"An Act repealing the Alaska coastal management program; relating to an extension for review and approval of revisions to the Alaska coastal management program; relating to reviews and modifications by the Department of Natural Resources; relating to coastal resource district policies; providing for an effective date by amending the effective date of sec. 45, ch. 24, SLA 2003; and providing for an effective date. "


 

The Alaska Coastal Management Program (ACMP) is a partnership between federal, state, and local governments providing state and local governments a voice in federal decision making. Alaska is one of 34 coastal and Great Lakes states and territories that utilize this program, a program that annually channels millions of dollars in federal grant money to the states. The ACMP has helped guide coastal development in the state since it was enacted in 1977.

Without the program the state and local governments lose their ability to control development on federal land and the Outer Continental Shelf. In addition the state will lose millions in federal coastal management planning money.

In 2003, HB 191 substantially revised the state coastal program. The federal Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management (OCRM) must approve the revised program. OCRM has determined that additional revisions are necessary before they can grant approval.

The 2003 legislation included state-imposed deadlines for revisions to local coastal programs. Coastal Districts are attempting to follow the statutory directive to revise their programs to meet the new requirements. However, OCRM has identified problems with the state's guidance to local districts regarding the scope and content of their program. The state will have to revise regulatory guidelines for the local districts before the new program can be approved by OCRM. In turn, the local districts will have to re-revise their programs to meet the new guidelines. It is a waste of time, money and effort for districts to revise their plans before the state's program is federally approved and any necessary changes have been made.

SB 102 bases the deadline for district coastal program revisions and annulment of the existing program on federal approval of the state's program. This extension will ensure an orderly and efficient transition to the new program.
