Pass the Beach Bill
A bill to reauthorize the BEACH Act has been introduced into the Senate. This landmark law was first championed by Surfrider Foundation a decade ago. Similar legislation has been introduced twice before, but neither attempts made it to the Senate floor for a vote.
The Clean Coastal Environment & Public Health Act of 2011 calls for quicker beach water testing methods and improved public notification of water quality results. It also expands the scope of the BEACH Act to include tracking and cleaning up the sources of beach water pollution.
Urge your Senators to show their support for healthy beaches and robust coastal economies by cosponsoring the Clean Coastal Environment & Public Health Act of 2011. Don't let them put this off for yet another year!
