With environmental issues looming, Alan Hays won’t haggle over Amendment 1 spending

Published Mar 3, 2015
In addition to Amendment 1, both House and Senate leaders have said comprehensive water policy is a priority after the Senate passed a springs bill in 2014 but it died after the House didn’t take it up.

HB 7003, among other things, emphasizes reliance on basin management action plans to clean up Lake Okeechobee and has backing from agriculture, business and industry groups. The bill also requires DEP to complete a water quality assessment for Florida springs by Dec. 1, 2018.
