Published 6/9/2015
Sen. Alan Hays, a Umatilla Republican who chairs a subcommittee that pieced together the Senate's Amendment 1 funding package, said lawmakers are trying to divvy up about $50 million among more than $1 billion in local water-project requests from across Florida.

The ballot initiative requires for the next 20 years that 33 percent of the proceeds from an existing real-estate tax, known as documentary stamps, go for land and water maintenance and acquisition across Florida.
