Keep Florida beautiful

Published 4/17/09 - The Voyager
Florida Forever, defined on the Florida Department of Environmental Protection Web site as “Florida’s conservation and recreation lands acquisition program, a blueprint for conserving our natural resources and renewing our commitment to conserve our natural and cultural heritage,” is looking at an untimely death. The Florida House and Senate budget writers have snapped the bear trap on the program, allocating zero funding to the program thus far in the budget-writing process, but proponent Sen. Paula Dockery, R-Lakeland, is in favor of reallocating funds that would go to a CSX commuter rail project to “Florida Forever,” but this initiative may face too much flack and lose momentum.
