TITLE 48 - TERRITORIES AND INSULAR POSSESSIONS

CHAPTER 19 - PACIFIC POLICY REPORTS

-HEAD-

Sec. 2001. Findings

-STATUTE-

The Congress finds that -

(1) the United States does not have a clearly defined policy

for United States noncontiguous Pacific areas (including the

Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, American Samoa,

Guam, the State of Hawaii, and the State of Alaska) and for

United States-associated noncontiguous Pacific areas (including

the Federated States of Micronesia, the Marshall Islands, and

Palau);

(2) the Federal Government has often failed to consider the

implications for, effects on, and potential of noncontiguous

Pacific areas in the formulation and conduct of foreign and

domestic policy, to the detriment of both the attainment of the

objectives of Federal policy and noncontiguous Pacific areas;

(3) policies and programs designed for the United States as a

whole may impose inappropriate standards on noncontiguous Pacific

areas because of their unique circumstances and needs; and

(4) the present Federal organizational arrangements for liaison

with (and providing assistance to) the insular areas may not be

adequate -

(A) to coordinate the delivery of Federal programs and

services to noncontiguous Pacific areas;

(B) to provide a consistent basis for administration of

programs;

(C) to adapt policy to the special requirements of each area

and modify the application of Federal programs, laws, and

regulations accordingly;

(D) to be responsive to the Congress in the discharge of its

responsibilities; and

(E) to attain the international obligations of the United

States.

-STATUTE-

(a) Submission

Not later than one year after January 14, 1986, and each five

years thereafter, the Secretary of the Interior, in consultation

President a report on United States noncontiguous Pacific areas

policy together with such recommendations as may be necessary to

accomplish the objectives of such policy.

(b) Contents

The reports required in subsection (a) of this section shall set

forth clearly defined policies regarding United States, and United

States associated, noncontiguous Pacific areas, including -

(1) the role of and impacts on the noncontiguous Pacific areas

in the formulation and conduct of foreign policy;

(2) the applicability of standards contained in Federal laws,

regulations, and programs to the noncontiguous Pacific areas and

any modifications which may be necessary to achieve the intent of

such laws, regulations, and programs consistent with the unique

character of the noncontiguous Pacific areas;

(3) the effectiveness of the Federal executive organizational

arrangements for -

(A) providing liaison between the Federal Government and the

governments of the noncontiguous Pacific areas;

(B) coordinating Federal actions in a manner which recognizes

the unique circumstances and needs of the noncontiguous Pacific

areas; and

(C) achieving the objective of Federal policy and ensuring

that the Congress receives the information necessary to

discharge its responsibilities; and

(4) actions which may be needed to facilitate the economic and

social health and development of the noncontiguous Pacific areas,

consistent with their self-determined objectives.
