18 CFR 725.1 - Authority.
This rule is being promulgated pursuant to the Water Resources Planning Act of 1965, section 402, Pub. L. 89-90, 79 Stat. 245 (42 U.S.C. 1962d-1). In addition, Executive Order 11988, Floodplain Management, at section 2(d); directs the preparation of procedures implementing its provisions, as does Executive Order 11990, Protection of Wetlands, at section 6. Each of these Orders was prepared in furtherance of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.). The floodplain management Order is also based on the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968, as amended (42 U.S.C. 4001 et seq.), and the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1977, as amended (87 Stat. 975).
