On this Earth Day, thank a legislator

Published April 22, 2008 (Opinion)
The Florida Forever Program has been a national model of this great work for the past 18 years. Today, as we celebrate Earth Day 2008, the Florida Legislature is considering legislation that is essential to Florida Forever — and to the future landscape of our state.

The Senate and House have given initial passage to legislation to renew and improve Florida Forever for an additional decade. Furthermore, the Legislature has agreed — at a time of serious economic and fiscal constraints for Florida — to appropriate the funding necessary for another year of the current program to buy critical lands in the coming year.

Thus, Florida Forever will continue uninterrupted next year and will be authorized through the year 2020.
