"Oregonians are blessed because our beaches are available to all. Such is not the case in most coastal areas where high rise hotels and private residences fence off beaches and keep most citizens away. Oregon’s Beach Law passed in 1967 provides the public with free and uninterrupted use of the beaches along our 362 miles of shoreline. It also directed that the ocean shores be administered as a state recreation area. Without Tom McCall’s force of will and ability to rally overwhelming public support, with a dramatic media event that included two helicopters filled with surveyors and scientists landing on the beaches accompanied by reporters, the Bill may have died in the legislature."
