New Jersey: Your public beach access is at risk! The “public access bill” (S-2470/A4092.), which would codify and establish the public trust doctrine, is being held up by lobbyists!

The public trust doctrine states that the public has a legal right to enjoy the state’s tidal waters and adjacent shorelines.

The best way to get S-2470/A4092 moving is to contact your State Representatives and have them ask the Committee Chairmen to schedule the Bill for consideration!

Here are the Committee Chairmen’s contact info:
