BEACH CHARGE PROPOSAL DROPPED

A proposal to increase Washington state revenue by requiring people to pay to park on state beaches hasbeen dropped.  As Washington copes with a multi-billion-dollar budget deficit, Steve Brand of the state Parks and Recreation Commission says every revenue-generating idea has been on the table. Brand met recently with officials in Westport and Ocean Shores to talk about the initial proposal. He told the Daily World newspaper on Tuesday that the idea has been dropped. It met with widespread opposition from Grays Harbor-area business and tourism officials.  Brand says while the beach parking fee idea has been dropped, other fee proposals are still being discussed.
