EDISON - The Jersey Shore may look a lot different once it's rebuilt from Sandy damage.

Gov. Chris Christie today said he's going to ask the federal government to pay for the Army Corps of Engineers to build and design all 126 miles of New Jersey's coastline.

The project would cost $750 million. The governor says that's a bargain compared to what FEMA will pay for destroyed or damaged homes.

Christie says towns with engineered beaches sustained less damage from the storm than those without.
