Senate scales back major springs bill

Published 4/22/2014
The original bill required that local governments, the DEP and water-management districts to identify the worst-leaking septic tanks and require their replacement — with the state footing the entire cost. The Legislature three years ago passed a septic-tank-inspection law and later repealed it after property owners and interest groups balked.

James pointed out that 60 percent of Florida's most important springs were located within economically-threatened counties.
