Breaking: Gov. Gavin Newsom signed into law Wednesday a bill designed to open the elusive beaches at Hollister Ranch — a significant move forward under his administration on an issue that has stalled for decades in the face of powerful landowners.  https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2019-10-09/hollister-ranch-beach-access-newsom 

The law declares that the public must be allowed to enter the ranch by land and access some of its 8.5 miles of shoreline by April 2022.  https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2019-10-09/hollister-ranch-beach-access-newsom 

In 2018, @RosannaXia asked: California beaches are supposed to be public. So why is the Hollister Ranch coast an exception?  https://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-hollister-ranch-public-access-20181005-htmlstory.html 

Newsom had not indicated whether he would sign the legislation, AB 1680, which is tougher than a similar measure vetoed last year by then-Gov. Jerry Brown.  https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2019-09-09/hollister-ranch-beach-access-bill
