1990. SEC. 6201. SHORT TITLE. 16 USC 1451 This subtitle may be cited as the "Coastal Zone Act Reauthorization Amendments of 1990". SEC. 6202. FINDINGS AND PURPOSE OF THIS SUBTITLE. 16 USC 1451 (a) FINDINGS. —Congress finds and declares the following: (1) Our oceans, coastal waters, and estuaries constitute a unique resource. The condition of the water quality in and around the coastal areas is significantly declining. Growing human pressures on the coastal ecosystem will continue to degrade this resource until adequate actions and policies are implemented. (2) Almost one-half of our total population now lives in coastal areas. By 2010, the coastal population will have grown from 80,000,000 in 1960 to 127,000,000 people, an increase of approximately 60 percent, and population density in coastal counties will be among the highest in the Nation. (3) Marine resources contribute to the Nation's economic stability. Commercial and recreational fishery activities support an industry with an estimated value of $12,000,000,000 a year.
