This legislation sets limits on development near Chesapeake Bay as well as on dredging and the deposition of dredged material into the bay. The legislation establishes the Cox Creek Citizens Oversight Committee (now mostly defunct); the Hart-Miller-Pleasure Island Oversight Committee, which provides oversight and monitoring of the future development, use, and maintenance of the Hart-Miller-Pleasure Island chain, and the water quality in the area immediately surrounding the islands; the Kent Island Citizens Oversight Committee (now defunct).
