Amendment to Executive Order No. 12580

                By the authority vested in me as President by the 
                Constitution and the laws of the United States of 
                America, including section 115 of the Comprehensive 
                Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act 
                of 1980, as amended (42 U.S.C. 9601 et seq.) (the 
                ``Act''), and section 301 of title 3, United States 
                Code, I hereby order that Executive Order No. 12580 of 
                January 23, 1987, be amended by adding to section 4 the 
                following new subsections:

                Section 1. A new subsection (c)(3) is added to read as 
                follows:

                ``(3) Subject to subsections (a) and (b)(1) of this 
                section, the functions vested in the President by 
                sections 106(a) and 122 (except subsection (b)(1)) of 
                the Act are delegated to the Secretary of the Interior, 
                the Secretary of Commerce, the Secretary of 
                Agriculture, the Secretary of Defense, and the 
                Secretary of Energy, to be exercised only with the 
                concurrence of the Coast Guard, with respect to any 
                release or threatened release in the coastal zone, 
                Great Lakes waters, ports, and harbors, affecting (1) 
                natural resources under their trusteeship, or (2) a 
                vessel or facility subject to their custody, 
                jurisdiction, or control. Such authority shall not be 
                exercised at any vessel or facility at which the Coast 
                Guard is the lead Federal agency for the conduct or 
                oversight of a response action. Such authority shall 
                not be construed to authorize or permit use of the 
                Hazardous Substance Superfund to implement section 106 
                or to fund performance of any response action in lieu 
                of the payment by a person who receives but does not 
                comply with an order pursuant to section 106(a), where 
                such order has been issued by the Secretary of the 
                Interior, the Secretary of Commerce, the Secretary of 
                Agriculture, the Secretary of Defense, or the Secretary 
                of Energy. This subsection shall not be construed to 
                limit any authority delegated by any other section of 
                this order. Authority granted under this subsection 
                shall be exercised in a manner to ensure interagency 
                coordination that enhances efficiency and 
                effectiveness.''

                Sec. 2. A new subsection (d)(3) is added to section 4 
                to read as follows:

                ``(3) Subject to subsections (a), (b)(1), and (c)(1) of 
                this section, the functions vested in the President by 
                sections 106(a) and 122 (except subsection (b)(1)) of 
                the Act are delegated to the Secretary of the Interior, 
                the Secretary of Commerce, the Secretary of 
                Agriculture, the Secretary of Defense, and the 
                Department of Energy, to be exercised only with the 
                concurrence of the Administrator, with respect to any 
                release or threatened release affecting (1) natural 
                resources under their trusteeship, or (2) a vessel or 
                facility subject to their custody, jurisdiction, or 
                control. Such authority shall not be exercised at any 
                vessel or facility at which the Administrator is the 
                lead Federal official for the conduct or oversight of a 
                response action. Such authority shall not be construed 
                to authorize or permit use of the Hazardous Substance 
                Superfund to implement section 106 or to fund 
                performance of any response action in lieu of the 
                payment by a person who receives but does not comply 
                with an order pursuant to section 106(a), where such 
                order has been issued by the Secretary of the Interior, 
                the Secretary of Commerce, the Secretary of 
                Agriculture, the Secretary of Defense, or the Secretary 
                of Energy. This subsection shall not be construed to 
                limit any authority delegated by any other section of
