Senator Introduces Bill to Expedite Texas Coastal Protection

U.S. Senator John Cornyn this week introduced legislation to speed up the process by which the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers studies and begins construction of a federally-funded coastal protection project along the Texas Gulf Coast.

The Corps’ Obligation to Assist in Safeguarding Texas (COAST) Act expedites the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ process for completing the Coastal Texas Protection & Restoration Study, a necessary prerequisite to any federally-funded protection project.

“Texans along our coast live under the constant threat of weather-related devastation to their homes, their livelihoods and their communities,” said Senator Cornyn.

“By reducing inefficiency and eliminating duplication, we can speed up the Army Corps’ process to ultimately help bring families, businesses and communities along the coast the peace of mind they deserve.”

The bill also streamlines Congressional authorization for the project once the Corps completes the feasibility study.
