It was nice to read in The Daily News article “Commission rejects Sunny Beach expansion bid” and; also read “Former land commissioners pan Middleton’s beach bill" on the front page of the paper.

The state of Texas is somewhat unique with the Open Beaches Act. I want our state to continue to have public beaches available to everyone.

I could not agree more.

Texans are begining to understand the open beach act needs revising. Property owners paying sky high prices and higher taxes need equal standing with tourists who pay nothing.

Gary Miller, he’s now the elitist!

Gary Miller, please explain your comment further. On the surface, it appears that you may be saying those wealthy enough to afford a front row beach house, are disadvantaged because people who pay nothing, can walk the same beach that's in front of their house. I'm sure I misread that but please explain further.

No legitimate action has been taken yet. We will just have to wait and see just how the traitor Republicans sneak around this problem
