Doherty: “Taxpayer Investment in Shore Restoration Must Come With Free Beach Access for the Public”

Senator Michael J. Doherty (R- Warren/Hunterdon/Somerset) intends to submit legislation that will require any shore communities accepting state or federal funding for rebuilding and restoration purposes to provide the general public with free beach access, and restroom facilities free of charge. His proposal will ensure that all taxpayers enjoy the fruits of public funds spent to restore shore communities damaged by Hurricane Sandy.
