Inos issued Executive Order No. 2013-24, reorganizing and merging the previously separate and locally mandated Division of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and Coastal Resources Management (CRM) entities under the newly established Bureau of Environmental & Coastal Quality (BECQ) agency under the Executive Branch. Based on EO 2013-24, the main purpose of the merger is to enhance efficiency and positive collaboration between the two environmental entities through integration of services and strategic goals, sharing of resources, and elimination of overlapping responsibilities
