Protect the Public Beach: Stop TX HB 4172

Victory: Prevented HB 4172 (Middleton) from passing into law.

This bill would have made it easier for private land owners to develop on or block access to the public beach, as it would have required the Texas General Land Office to prove public use exists in an area rather than requiring the developer to prove that their development is not infringing upon public lands.
