Nude Beach

Legislators get the skinny
They're told nude beaches help economy
January 30, 2009|By Anthony Man Political Writer
The Broward Legislative Delegation heard testimony on a range of issues Thursday: work force development, spaying and neutering pets, funding for Tri-Rail - and nude beaches.

They're good for Florida's economy, said Richard Mason of the South Florida Free Beaches and the Florida Naturist Association, who asked Broward's state lawmakers to oppose any legislation that would force nude beaches to close.

He said the closest one to Broward, Haulover Beach in Miami-Dade County, is an economic engine, drawing tourists from other states and countries to a place where they can enjoy a beach without the encumbrance of clothing. Twenty-seven percent of Haulover visitors come from outside Florida, Mason said.
