The California Coastal Act at 40

November 21, 2016 | By DAMIEN SCHIFF

Last week, I had the pleasure to present on a panel addressing coastal access at a conference marking the 40th anniversary of the passage of the California Coastal Act. My remarks focused on the actual and potential conflicts between the Act (and how the Coastal Commission administers it) and the constitutionally protected rights of coastal landowners. Many thanks to Professor Richard Frank and the conference organizers for inviting me to speak.
