Opinion questioning if it is legal for OCRM to consider and grant permits for bridges to islands, whose title is presumed to be in the state, for private development and use where the permit is tantamount to be de facto conveyance of these state lands (or the use of these state lands) and the ouster of the public, without requiring that the applicant clearly and convincingly demonstrate, by means such as an attorney’s opinion and accompanying title abstract, a grant from the State or predecessor sovereign.

Requested by: The Honorable Arthur Ravenel, Jr., Senator, District No. 34
