Oceans Act of 2008 

Yesterday Governor Patrick signed the nation's first comprehensive ocean planning law. The Oceans Act of 2008 requires Massachusetts to create a plan to manage development in its coastal waters, balancing natural resource preservation with traditional and new uses, including renewable energy. For a summary of the law, see the press release issued by the Governor's Office, and the article in today's Boston Globe. For a copy of the legislation and additional background about the Act, see the Mass Ocean Campaign web site.
