This statement is in response to a directive contained in the President's 1977 Environmental Protection Message. It examines Federal programs which, through grants, loans, subsidies, permits, or acquisition and management, contribute to the development or protection of barrier islands, beaches, and spits which lie adjacent to the Atlantic and Gulf coasts of the United States. Further, it examines alternative changes to those programs which would enhance the opportunities for protecting the islands and discusses consequences of each of the alternatives.
