HB 271 Water resources; shore protection; revise various provisions

Voted on Friday March 3, 2017

Michael Caldwell's thoughts

The line for state protection on coastline on property right now is drawn from "20 foot native tree to 20 foot native tree to pre-1979 structure". This is a ludicrous way to draw a line and forces property owners to go through a crazy process to find out whether or not the state has jurisdiction. This legislation draws a clean line 25 feet from dunes, coast, etc. and creates a clean, easy to judge line.
