Beach renourishment is high on the priority list for our representatives in Washington. Congressman Mike McIntyre has asked for more $6 million in federal renourishment money for Brunswick, New Hanover, and Pender counties. Senator Kay Hagan told WWAY she's trying to get beach money fast tracked as part of the stimulus plan. In addition to the tourism impact, Hagan and McIntyre are pushing the point that healthy beaches also play a role in protecting the coast from hurricanes.
