In her letter to the Acting Director of the White House Office of Management and Budget, Senator Bates asks the director to “approve a request from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to fund the Encinitas-Solana Beach Coastal Storm Damage Reduction Project, also known as the San Diego County Shore Protection Project.”
In her letter to the California Coastal Commission, Senator Bates asks the commission to reconsider bluff stabilization efforts that do not involve “managed retreat.”
Senator Bates has communicated with government officials and community members on efforts to stabilize eroding coastal bluffs not only in Encinitas, but throughout the state. She will continue to work with stakeholders on solutions that can earn bipartisan support in Sacramento and Washington, D.C., and community support in affected areas.
