AGLO 1976 NO. 41 > Jun 24 1976

Because the factors upon which AGO 1970 No. 27 [[to Jonathan Whetzel, State Representative on December 14, 1970]], relating to the right of the public to use the ocean beach areas of the state, are not present in the case of Puget Sound beach areas, members of the public do not have the same right to use the Puget Sound beaches as they do the ocean beaches.
