Summary as introduced:

Bottomlands conveyed by special grant; trespass; proof.  Establishes a presumption in a private civil action for trespass upon bottomlands alleged to have been conveyed by a special grant or compact that such bottomlands are owned by the Commonwealth. This presumption only applies in such an action and does not otherwise affect any person's property rights. The plaintiff may rebut this presumption by establishing his ownership by a preponderance of the evidence.
