Washington, D.C. — In response to the White House Council on Environmental Quality and the Office of Science and Technology Policy releasing the final National Ocean Policy implementation plan, Michael Conathan, Director of Ocean Policy at the Center for American Progress, released the following statement:

I applaud the National Ocean Council’s work to develop a common-sense approach to management of one of America’s most beloved and valuable natural resources. The changes included in the final plan reflect careful consideration of the concerns of a broad group of stakeholders. The result is a policy that enhances federal government efficiency and allows states and regions a stronger say in crafting solutions to their specific ocean challenges to ensure a vibrant future for America’s oceans and coasts.
