Enough Already! Support the Texas Open Beaches Act.

"After spending more than 18 months attempting to answer a key legal question in Severance's lawsuit against Texas -- issuing an unpopular decision, then having second thoughts -- the Supreme Court has sent the case back to a federal appeals court to decide whether the whole thing is moot. You see, Severance sold both the houses she sued the state over, through a federal buyout program, no less. And though she claims big government might still come after her remaining beachfront home, Texas officials argue she's misrepresented whether that property is in danger. Will someone please give this litigation the dismissal it deserves?" - excerpt from this op-ed in the Star-Telegram.
