The Plan recommends 82 management actions to be carried out by 20 federal and stage agencies, over 100 local governments and special purpose districts, and other bay users. This report describes how Plan implementation will be led by a newly created Galveston Bay Program (GBP) of the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission (TNRCC) and outlines the major roles of other federal, state, and local governments, 'stakeholders,' and the public. A summary table of agency responsibilities for each of The Plan's actions is also included in this document. The report also identifies the possibly enforceable policies in each of The Plan's actions, and cites the relevant federal and/or state statutory and regulatory basis for enforcement. Additional actions required (if any) to make the policies enforceable are also described. Based on the analysis of enforceable policies, necessary federal and state legislation, Memoranda of Understanding, and local ordinances are identified. The report concludes with a description of how implementation results will be tracked and evaluated.
This work supplements chapter 8 of: The Galveston Bay plan. Funded in part by the United States Environmental Protection Agency under assistance agreement to the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission. "November, 1994." Includes bibliographical references (p. 127).
