U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) said Folly Beach will receive $20.4 million in beach renourishment funding.
“I appreciate Secretary Darcy working with us to get these funds reprogrammed,” said U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham. “This should allow us to move to construction by the end of October. It’s an important project and I’m glad we’re going to be able to get it done.” It was imperative that we get this done with FY13 funds, as Folly Beach was not included in President’s FY 14 Budget.
“I also appreciate Mayor Tim Goodwin’s tireless advocacy on this project,” said Graham. “He played an integral role in helping convey to the Assistant Secretary the critical nature of this project.”
Graham is a member of the Energy and Water Subcommittee of the Senate Appropriations Committee.
