Your Support Needed: Increase NJ’s Shore Protection Fund

To be delivered to The New Jersey State House, The New Jersey State Senate, and Governor Chris Christie

Petition Statement

The present $25 million/year Shore Protection Fund is critically underfunded and insufficient to meet anticipated costs of New Jersey's coastal restoration projects. An increase to $50 million in the Fund is needed to protect New Jersey's coastal infrastructure and the $20+ billion shore tourism economy. Urge your legislators to support Assembly bill A2945 and Senate bill S311.
There are currently 694 signatures. NEW goal - We need 1,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Current funding of $25 million/year has not been increased since 1998. Coastal protection programs must include back bays, barrier islands and the inland waterways that are sources of flooding for coastal and urban communities. Shore Protection Fund's beach protection programs are an investment in our State’s $20+ billion shore tourism economy. Urge your legislators to support this much-needed increase in the Shore Protection Fund.
