The purpose of the report is to provide an inventory of those agencies and laws along with their associated regulations, that constitute the regulatory framework for environmental protection of Galveston Bay, one of the estuaries of national significance covered under the 1987 law. The inventory is largely descriptive, serving as the first phase in a larger project which will ultimately evaluate the effectiveness of the existing regulatory framework. That assessment in turn will form the basis for the Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan as well as for policy recommendations to improve the coordination of environmental management of the Bay.
