OBAMA BUDGET FALLS SHORT ON NEW JERSEY, NATIONAL BEACH PROJECTS

A group that represents the interests of many coastal communities in New Jersey and other states is blasting President Barack Obama’s latest budget as it relates to coastal protection. The American Shore and Beach Preservation Association calls the President’s committment of less than $44 million for studies and projects to reduce coastal storm damage a “great disappointment”. Harry Simmons is the president of the association; he says the funding limits are lower than what the federal government typically provides, and ten times less of the true actual need of coastal states in this country. Simmons believes legitimate coastal projects will not happen due to this lack of federal funding.
