In this Recon Order, the Commission amended its cable landing license application rules and application procedures to require applicants to certify their compliance with the Coastal Zone Management Act of 1972 (CZMA), as amended, 16 U.S.C. 1456. The goal of the CZMA is to preserve, protect, develop and, where possible, restore and enhance the nation's coastal resources.
