I believe there's nothing wrong with A.

Here's an explanation, I'm afraid it's a bit roundabout, but that's how I did it.

The correct parts of the sentences say this:

'Legislation... permits A, but does not allow B'

If we look at B closely, we can see 'injury to' people.

I figured, that by the same token, it should be 'damage to' resources.

Only A provides for that.

I think "damage to" is the correct idiom here, so (B) and (D) are out.
(C) and (E) changes the meaning of sentence by using damaging, (Using damaging would mean, "federal legislation has damaged the resources.", which is not the intended meaning of the sentence.)

What's the OA.

A for me too
damage to is correct idiom
I think "giving compensation" is redundant; compensation is always given
