IVORYTON, Conn. (WTNH) - An effort to protect Connecticut's rivers and shorelines from climate change will be discussed on Friday afternoon.

United States Senator Chris Murphy will discuss new legislation that would create a new grant program at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to help states and towns create natural and more resilient shorelines.

The legislation would give priority to states like Connecticut that have experienced storms like Hurricane Sandy.

The discussion is set to take place at 2:15 p.m. on Friday afternoon at the Connecticut River Museum.
