Reason article on California Coastal Commission abuses
Author: Damien M. Schiff
PLF runs a Coastal Land Rights Project, whose principal goal is to fight on behalf of coastal property owners against big and abusive government. One of the most frequent violators of individuals' property rights in coastal areas is the California Coastal Commission. PLF has been successfully fighting against the Commission since its landmark 1987 Supreme Court victory in Nollan v. California Coastal Commission.
But PLF is not the only one that has noticed the abusiveness of this state agency. Richard Oshen, a California filmaker, has recently produced a documentary entitled Sins of Commission that details the many rights violations committed by the Commission. Reason Magazine has this fine article on the film.
