Coastal Zone Legislation Will Make Delaware More Business Friendly

The Coastal Zone Act, which was reformed late last month by the General Assembly in the state of Delaware, will allow for the redevelopment of 14 industrial sites across the state.

The legislation will alleviate restrictions on transferring goods to ships and repurposing property, but still maintains regulations surrounding oil refineries, steel mills, and natural gas terminals

“The reforms in [this] legislation will help improve economic opportunity for all Delawareans and create good-paying jobs across our state,” said Governor John Carney in a Newsworks article.

The signing of this bill is expected to help bring businesses to the state of Delaware and bolster activity at the Port of Wilmington.
