This report to the President on coastal zone management is submitted in accordance with Section 313(a) and (b) of the Coastal Zone Management Act of 1972 (Public Law 92-583) signed on October 27 of that year. The first year of implementation of the program came during Fiscal Year 1974 and is covered in the annual report for that period. The preparatory work is outlined in the Fiscal Year 1973 report. During Fiscal Year 1975, all of the 30 states eligible to participate, and three of the four territories, began first- or second-year development of their coastal zone program. This report discusses the Federal and State actions for this period as states worked to meet the fall 1977 deadline suggested by the Act for submission of their programs for Federal approval and matching assistance to carry out the programs.
