Update: U.S. Coastal Climate Change Planning Legislation (H.R. 764)

In a previous blog post, we alerted you to legislation that was reintroduced in the U.S. House of Representatives for the 112th Congress. The bill was added to the 113th Congress (2013-2014)'s agenda earlier this year. The Coastal State Climate Change Planning Act (H.R. 764) was introduced by Rep. Lois Capps (CA). The bill would amend the Coastal Zone Management Act to create a grant program to support the development of adaptation plans and projects by coastal states. The bill was referred to the House Natural Resources Subcommittee on Fisheries, Wildlife, Oceans, and Insular Affairs. John Fleming is the Subcommittee's Chairman.
