Florida Matters Preview: Beach Renourishment

It's that time of year to hit the beach and soak up some rays, but in some areas erosion means there's not a lot of places to build a sand castle.

A bill awaiting Gov. Scott's signature - or possible veto - would mean $50 million for beach renourishment. This week on Florida Matters we'll talk about whether that funding is enough to tackle the issue of beach erosion across the state.


In this excerpt from Florida Matters, WUSF's Carson Cooper talks with State Representative Kathleen Peters of Treasure Island, Robin Sollie, President of the Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber of Commerce and Andy Squires, a coastal resources manager with Pinellas County.
