With your support, the poorly conceived seagrass mitigation bill died. This is a significant victory in our efforts to prevent the destruction of vital seagrass beds.
The legislature continues to ignore the will of Florida voters by not fully funding Florida Forever and we still have unfinished business to breach the Rodman Dam and restore the Ocklawaha River. That said, $100 million was provided for Florida Forever and the Rural and Family Lands program will receive $300 million. Our advocacy will continue.
The legislature has also sent House Bill 741 (HB 741) to Governor DeSantis’ desk. This utility-backed anti-solar bill would cripple the industry and kill thousands of jobs. We ask our supporters to call Gov. DeSantis and tell him to veto this bill and stand for energy independence and solar jobs.
Thank you, again, to all our supporters and members for your advocacy.
