Example Comment:

“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 restore funding for land conservation.

From 2015-2018, less than 4% of dollars from the Amendment have been allocated to land conservation statewide. I urge you to reverse this trend and support legislation that annually dedicates the largest share of funds from the Land Acquisition Trust Fund to land conservation programs including the Florida Forever priority list, Rural and Family Lands Protection Program, and Florida Communities Trust program.”
