The committee was created during the 83rd session to study the effect of recent changes made to the Texas Open Beaches Act. Under the Act the public has free and unrestricted access to the State's beaches.


The committee is charged with studying the effectiveness of HB 3459 (83R), and examining the feasibility and desirability of creating and maintaining a coastal barrier system.


Deshotel released this statement:


Texas coastal erosion rates are some of the highest in the nation, and recent major storms have particularly made this an issue along our upper coast. As a coastal member Co-Chairing this committee I look forward to finding a way to protect Texans constitutional right to access to public beaches while preserving the rights of private property owners.
