Stone said he felt the subcommittee should still study the Summerland Key issue more and find out what the public thinks about the Tampa Bay bulkhead line and about Biscayne Bay. He said his proposal that all shorelines be zones by the state should also be considered. Sen. Ray Knopke, D-Temple Terrace, said the group should also investigate submerged land problems In fresh water lakes, the digging of canals and the cutting of timber on state land. Rep. Marshall Harris, D Miami, said he was hoping the subcommittee would eventually recommend that submerged land be sold for private or commercial purposes only if conservation values were at a minimum. i it future, but they agreed that they had to gat lie'- more information before they could make complete proposals. "If we just want to come up with some quick, shallow answers, I'm ready to go," said Stone, who had indicated before that he hoped to wrap up the subcommittee's work Saturday. "But how ready are we to go on to something comprehensive?" The legislators disagreed on what kind of moratorium on submerged land activities was already in effect and what should be in effect, so they decided not to make any action about continuing the ban until they can be sure of what the cabinet has already done. The discussion came after subcommittee members decided they had better not probe the proposed sale of 44 acres of over filled land at Summerland Key at this point for fear of being held in contempt because the matter was before the courts. And former State Comptroller Ray Green and an attorney testified that cabinet consideration of the bulkhead lines in Tampa Bay which is still pending was held up seven years ago by prospects that Disneyland East might be built in the Tampa-St. Petersburg area.
