Clothing Optional is pretty much the same as Nude to me - clothing is not mandatory. As long as they don't make them Clothing Required.

Reason for bill is some beaches are shared jurisdictions. Currently the county may say is ok, but city not. Or a large beach could be in different jurisdictions by just a few feet.
New law would put all nude beaches in a State Wide jurisdictions, CO.
Part of what FL is looking at is the $$$$$ nude/CO recreation could bring in.

After reading lots and lots more on this issue it looks like at least part of this effort is to help preserve the worlds 2nd most popular nude beach in southern Florida.
Word is city is talking of selling beach to developers for big money.
But even if we do loose Haulover beach, that bill would protect social nudism on Federal and State owned nude beaches in Florida.

OK, why would a developer want to buy a beach? Put up a big hotel in the ocean, wait for a hurricane, sing a sad song about being wind and water damaged, and collect money from insurance and public relief funds. Florida ought to have a coastline protection act like California does; high tide to the first ridge inland or a specified distance. It has worked rather well here, except all the big money wants to have a special exemption for their pet project.

Sadly in areas of FL you have to drive for miles to even get access to the beach.

How much money does nude/co recreation bring in? I read report that annual parking fees for Haulover beach is over 2 million. Seems almost unbelievable amount for parking. I can not imagine the total economic impact.

Having grown up in Panama City, Florida I can confirm many original residences and later motels/hotels were built a short distance from the high tide line. And, in fact, the Fontainebleau at Panama City Beach was built with a portion jutting into the surf. However, after a major hurricane hit the area many years ago now construction on the surf side of the highway (primarily US 98) was halted and moved further from the beaches. Of course, existing structures still exist where originally constructed.
