The California Coastal Commission Liquefied Natural Gas files contain reports, correspondence, court records, newspaper clippings
and miscellaneous files relating to liquefied natural gas (LNG) sites proposed by several public utility companies in 1972.
The California Coastal Commission was created through the California Coastal Act to prevent the privatization of California's
beaches through the regulation of land and water use in the coast. At the time of the LNG proposals the California Coastal
Commission was the state authority for approving and permitting rights for LNG terminals.
The California Coastal Commission was established by voter initiative in 1972 to identify and prevent ecological and environmental
dangers threatening California's coastal landscape and to protect coastal land from privatization. Since the California Legislature
passed the California Coastal Act of 1976, the Coastal Commission has planned and regulated the use of land and water in the
coastal zone through reviews of local and federal government programs and activities.
