Re “Some teeth for Coastal Commission?” Aug. 19

This is a terrible idea.

The reasoning for the Coastal Commission to be able to issue fines is because it takes too long for the judicial system to work. So if some official (who could be politically motivated) decides to fine you or me, and even if we think it is wrong, we are stuck.

We are faced with a judicial system that does not work, a judicial system that takes too long. So fix that problem.

The Legislature should be working to get our courts sufficiently staffed to handle legal issues in a timely manner.

If this bill passes, it will not be power to the people, it will be power to the government.
