These amendments will satisfy the Legislative Periodic Review and Expiration of Existing Rules process requirements (G.S. 150B-21.3A), and address priority updates to enhance clarity of existing rules and address issues and gaps to ensure effective management of the North Carolina Coastal Reserve in accordance with G.S. 113A-129.1-3 (Coastal Area Management Act).
