All of a sudden the ideology shifts because landowners don't want to lose the benefit of the taxpayers' money, i.e. 'We should try to protect that in any way possible (with tax dollars).' Now the coastal land is sooo important and benefits us all and has 'tons of different recreational and commercially import species', blah, blah, blah.
Let's keep paying for these poor landowners to enjoy their Private excursions on their Private property. I could go on and on as to why they don't deserve it. I'll reiterate on an earlier point. Why don't the landowners work with the general public through the State to make it mutually beneficial to restore our coast. If the State is going to fund the restoration, at least, landowners, please let the rest of us use the water. We would appreciate it and we wouldn't hurt your land.
