The plan to remove sand from the beaches of Martin and St. Lucie counties to renourish the beaches of Miami-Dade County

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has been studying a plan to remove sand from the beaches of Martin and St. Lucie counties to renourish the beaches of Miami-Dade County.

Assuming that all logistical problems  are solvable, are you in favor of or against implementing such a plan?  Of course, ultimately, Congress will have the ‘final say’ in appropriating sufficient funds for any such program.  The Constitution outlines a limited government.  The Founders stated in at least three places that all powers not expressly granted to Congress are reserved to the States or to the People.

Any reader owning beachfront property should have an opinion on the issue of taking beach sand from one county’s beaches and using it to renourish the beaches of another county.  But for readers in America owning land that is not beachfront land, the second question still remains: should federal money be spent on a project tha affects properties in one state.
