The last time the State of Delaware used the “Consensus Building Institute” scam-shop to carve up the Coastal Zone Act, twenty-five years ago, Green Delaware and Audubon were on opposite sides and DAS was a key seller-out. I’ve been an Audubon member most of the time since about 1971, and am pleased to see that Delaware Audubon is showing more brains and integrity this time around, and is holding back from the farce. This shows some smarts and political maturity.
A key thing to remember is that the battle was lost in the legislature and the mind of an uber-mediocre governor. That outcome is not going to be reversed by DNREC.
It’ s important to pay some attention to the administrative rulemaking process but not be distracted and diverted by it.
If people are serious about getting the Coastal Zone Act back, they need to focus on Carney and on getting rid of turkey legislators like Osienskim and on bringing in corrective legislation.
