Property owners on the Maine coastal waterfront own the intertidal land, or the land between the mean high and low tides. A bill, L.D. 1388, is being introduced to take this ownership away via an unconstitutional land grab by the state.

Per the Maine Constitution: “Private property shall not be taken for public uses without just compensation.”

A hearing before the Judiciary Committee will take place in Augusta at 9 a.m. Wednesday. I urge anyone who is concerned about losing their property and their natural rights to strongly oppose this bill, either in person or by submitting their opposition in writing to:
