Florida DEP Administrative Rule Challenge

The Naturist Action Committee (NAC) has joined with B.E.A.C.H.E.S. Foundation Institute (B.E.A.C.H.E.S.) and other naturist organizations to seek a modification to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) rules relating to nude uses of public beaches. This challenge would seek to restore the status quo set by the legislatures (from early 1990s) and the Florida Supreme Court’s interpretation dating back to 1971 of the Florida Indecent Exposure Law (FS 800.03).

This will require a Rule Petition and promulgation by way of the Florida Administrative Hearing Process to secure public lands for safe nude recreation use. B.E.A.C.H.E.S. is leading this effort through the engagement of attorney and lobbyist representation. Read more on the B.E.A.C.H.E.S. website.
