Rebuild or Retreat Debated in Connecticut

"[State lawmakers] have temporarily put aside the more delicate question of whether homeowners in Connecticut’s most vulnerable shoreline areas ought to rebuild at all, after a bill before the Environment Committee prompted a great deal of concern. That legislation, proposed by the Connecticut chapter of the Nature Conservancy, called for “a fair and orderly legal process to foster strategic retreat of property ownership, over a period of several decades,” in coastal areas subject to erosion or repetitive structural damage." - excerpt from article in NY Times.
