Passing On

We were saddened today to learn of the passing of Reid Harris, who died on October 16 at his home in St. Simons Island, GA. Mr. Harris, a state legislator in the 1960s, was the author and driving force behind the Coastal Marshland Protection Act, a major piece of environmental conservation legislation, as well as one of the key engineers of legislative independence in 1966-1967.
