Beach Renourishment Money

Millions of dollars for beach renourishment on pleasure island is still in jeopardy. Carolina and Kure beaches are counting on about five-million dollars every three years in federal funds to help repair beach erosion. President bush's new budget trims the funding by more than two million dollars per year. Officials say the difference will threaten some vital projects. Congressman Mike Mcintyre is pushing congress to restore the funding. He says the house may vote on the issue later today
