Despite Amendment 1, Florida Forever comes up short — again — in state budget deal

Published June 15, 2015
The state’s top environmental land-buying program, Florida Forever, was set at $17.4 million Sunday night in budget negotiations between the House and Senate.

Efforts to preserve Florida’s freshwater springs fared better, drawing $47.5 million — $32 million in new state money. The level of funding is close to what Scott has sought for water quality and conservation projects at some of Florida’s 700 known springs.
