LAW: Keeping beaches open for all. From Mikeala Rodriguez 's story in the Texas Observer: "The majority of Texans live in landlocked areas, but those of us who visit the state’s beaches have advocates like Ellis Pickett to thank for fighting to keep the coast open to the public. Texas has upheld the public’s “birthright” to play on state shores since the passage of the OpenOpen Beaches Act of 1959. It’s one of the most progressive laws the Texas Legislature has ever enacted, enshrining in statute the idea that the coastline is a treasure for all Texans to share. In a state in which more than 90 percent of the land is privately owned, that’s a rare sentiment. Specifically, the OpenOpen Beaches Act protects the public’s right to access and use the state’s beaches. But developers and homeowners have lately challenged that right of access, seeking to turn stretches of the coast into private lands. A landowner named Carol Severance took on the OpenOpen Beaches Act in court. Severance, a Californian of all things, sought to maintain control of her coastal properties after a tropical storm pushed back the Galveston Island coastline, placing her homes on public land. In a September 2012 ruling in the case— Severance v. Patterson —the Texas Supreme Court sided with Severance. The court ruled that portions of the coastline were exempt from the OpenOpen Beaches Act, a decision that some feared would gut the statute. Private owners have since challenged the public’s access to beaches in several cases, including  Brannan v. State of Texas , which challenges the public’s access to Surfside Beach in Brazoria County and other popular recreation spots." http://bit.ly/1ifgCxi
...and expanding the rightright to vote has long been a struggle in Texas but the challenges have been magnified in recent years," said Haltom. "In order to fight back against the barriers being erected to voter participation, it is vital that this work happen year-round. That's why I am so excited to be a part of the DNC's effort to ensure that all eligible Texans are able to fully participate in their democracy."
