Specific measures which the League supports include:

  • enforcement of regulations to improve water quality;
  • provision for an adequate staff to implement programs;
  • acquisition and preservation of open space land, including inland wetlands and tidal marshes;
  • a regional approach to planning;
  • adequate and equitable financing of state programs;
  • establishment of clear lines of authority and coordination of policy among state agencies.
