Congresswoman Calls for Shore Protection Projects

Congresswoman Lois Frankel (FL-22) was joined by Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) in leading 22 members of Congress from both parties in sending a letter to the Chairman and Ranking Member of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Energy and Water urging full funding for shoreline protection projects.

These projects include beach fills and renourishment, construction of shore structures like sea walls and breakwaters, and best practices and management like regional sediment management that protect coastal communities from devastating storms.

Shore protection projects are vital to the well-being of coastal communities, shielding residents and property from damaging storms. They also are critical to preserve the beaches that our tourism-driven economy relies on in South Florida. Without our beaches, our way of life would be threatened, which is why I will continue to fight for funding to address shore protection,” said Congresswoman Frankel.

Congresswoman Frankel has been a staunch advocate for shore protection projects. One of her first votes in Congress was to help pass the bipartisan Hurricane Sandy relief bill, which included funds for South Florida beach renourishment.
