Call to Action

Here are suggested questions for legislative delegations
from Natural Resources, Marty Sullivan)

1) The conservation of Florida’s natural areas and recreational lands is one of the most important things we can do to protect Florida’s environment and economy for present and future generations. The Florida Water and Land Conservation Amendment, passed by 75% of voters, was intended to do that through land acquisitions. This is a priority of the League of Women Voters.

Since land acquisition is not being properly funded, will you support a new statute to fund land acquisition as the largest share of funds from the Land Acquisition Trust Fund?

 

2) A high priority for the League of Women Voters is a statewide ban on advanced well stimulation treatments, aka “fracking.” Geologic testing is detrimental to the environment, and production wells damage the environment and water supply and potentially cause catastrophic groundwater pollution.

Will you support a ban on fracking? If not, how do you propose we safeguard our water and natural environment?
