Crist signs bill condemned by environmentalists

Published Jul. 1, 2009 - The Florida Times-Union
Gov. Charlie Crist signed a contentious bill Tuesday that moves permitting power over communities’ water use into the hands of executive directors at the state’s five water management districts.

State laws and board policies allowed that except in the case of major water-consumption permits, such as permits to use more than 500,000 gallons daily, and other large-scale environmental permits, such as for construction affecting more than 100 acres or work impacting more than one acre of wetlands.
