Coastal Barrier Resources Act (CBRA)- Bipartisan conservation at work
- "Coastal barriers are inherently storm-prone and dynamic systems located at the interface of land and sea... Over the past 40 years, CBRA has helped to reduce the intensity of development in these high-risk coastal areas, protect coastal habitat, and save millions of taxpayer dollars each year. Maintaining the beneficial functions of coastal barriers as natural storm buffers is important as the nation experiences and prepares for increased flooding and erosion associated with climate change impacts, such as sea-level rise and increased storm surge, and more intense and frequent coastal storms throughout the 21st century and beyond." - Excerpt from US Fish and Wildlife Service
