PLF to participate in Coastal Commission conference
Author: Paul Beard II
On Thursday, June 23, 2011, a full-day conference on the California Coastal Commission will take place in Sacramento, California.
Sponsored by UC Davis and Capitol Weekly, the conference's goal is "to provide a balanced and rigorous discussion of the Commission's policies and operations." There will be four panels, with an array of speakers from the entire political spectrum. The Commission's Executive Director, Peter Douglas, will deliver the keynote address.
I will be participating on the second panel, which is scheduled for 10:45 a.m. and is provocatively entitled "Private Property Rights v. The Public Interest."
If you're in the area and are interested in a lively debate about one of the State's most controversial bureaucracies, it's not too late to sign up. Hope to see you there.
