The study is involved with the entire history of land and water resource legislation and the multitude of problems arising from a decentralized government. It relates directly to intergovernmental and interorganizational relations, the practice of purchasing cooperation through grants-in-aid, the evolution of goals for society, the means chosen to attain goals, and institutional reactions to changed public preferences. Presented, with selected detail, are three pieces of Federal legislation which have a direct impact on use and planning of water and related land resources. Results are viewed in light of what the record shows the programs were generally expected to do by those who advocated, framed and passed the legislation. Special attention is given to the impact on state and local institutional arrangements, financial commitment and planning. Some conclusions are reached and suggestions for improving the procedure are made. (Author)
