                    Mr. BARRASSO, from the Committee on Environment and Public

                                         [To accompany S. 1395]

                           [Including cost estimate of the Congressional Budget Office]
                    The Committee on Environment and Public Works, to which was
                  referred the bill (S. 1395) to revise the boundaries of certain John
                  H. Chafee Coastal Barrier Resources System units in Delaware,
                  having considered the same, reports favorably thereon without
                  amendment and recommends that the bill do pass.
                               GENERAL STATEMENT AND BACKGROUND
                    The Coastal Barrier Resources Act (CBRA) (Pub. L. 97-348), is
                  a map-based law enacted in 1982 that recognizes certain actions
                  and programs of the Federal Government subsidize and encourage
                  development on coastal barriers. 16 U.S.C. 3501 et seq. Building on
                  coastal barriers can contribute to the loss of natural resources and
                  threaten human life, health and property. The CBRA system cur-
                  rently contains 859 geographic units in 23 States and territories
                  along the Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico, Great Lakes, U.S. Virgin Is-
                  lands, and Puerto Rico coasts. The CBRA units are depicted on
                  maps that are maintained by the Secretary of the Interior through
                  the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS).
                    While CBRA does not prohibit or regulate development, it re-
                  moves the Federal incentives to build on these unstable and envi-
                  ronmentally sensitive areas. CBRA seeks to save taxpayers' money,
                  keep people out of harm's way, and conserve natural resources by
                  restricting most new Federal expenditures and financial assistance
