Federal Consistency Geographic Location Descriptions

These data represent state geographic location descriptions (GLDs). Section 307 of the "Coastal Zone Management Act of 1972" (CZMA), called the “federal consistency” provision, gives states a strong voice in federal agency decision making, which they otherwise would not have, for activities that may affect a state’s coastal uses or resources. Federal agency, federal license or permit, and federal financial assistance activities are subject to federal consistency review if the activity occurs outside of the state’s coastal zone but within a GLD. This location description encompasses an area outside the coastal zone in which an activity would have reasonably foreseeable coastal effects. For activities outside of a state’s coastal zone to be automatically subject to federal consistency review, the state federal consistency list must identify the activity and its associated geographic location description. These data represents the GLDs for all states that have defined them.
