Overview

The implementation process of state regulatory statutes is examined in depth in this volume, both generally and in the specific case of the 1972 California coastal initiative. Based on a review of the literature on policy implementation and regulatory policymaking, the authors develop a general conceptual framework of the implementation process and then apply this framework to one of the most novel and comprehensive state-level land use statutes, the California Coastal Zone Conservation Act of 1972. They provide a history of the act, from the first perceived need for regulation through debate, drafting, and implementation. The volume examines the external and internal factors that affected the Coastal Commissions; the process of permit review; the impact of the Commissions' permit decisions on public access to the ocean and on housing prices; the development of the 1975 California Coastal plan and its revision by the legislature; the Commissions' activities in a new political environment after 1976; and the nationwide implications of the California Coastal Commissions for the effective implementation of regulatory policy.
