House OKs more modest terminal groin bill

By Laura Leslie
 
RALEIGH, N.C. — State House lawmakers voted 80-33 Wednesday to ease restrictions on four terminal groin projects at the coast.
 
The House version of Senate Bill 151 is a far cry from from the original Senate version, which would allow terminal groin construction in every inlet in the state, as well as removing parts of current law intended to protect property owners and taxpayers.
 
Rep. Chris Millis, R-Pender, said the House version is a more measured approach, maintaining the limit on the number of terminal groins at four as a pilot project while easing some of the restrictions in current law that he said are making it "impossible" to build those four projects.
