California Cracks Down on Beach Blocking Scofflaws

The California Coastal Commission has a powerful new tool to go after homeowners who block access to the state's beaches—the CC can now fine such scofflaws instead of taking them to court.

"Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill that would allow the California Coastal Commission to fine property owners who block access to beaches, whether through phony signs or putting padlocks on access gates," reports Christina Pascucci.

"Before the bill was passed, the Coastal Commission would have to take property owners to court if they did such a thing. Now, however, they can slap them with a hefty fine."
