Environmental land money diverted by Legislature

Published 5/9/2015
Environmental groups launched a campaign to persuade voters to amend the Florida Constitution to devote one-third of existing revenue from real estate transaction taxes to the purchase of environmentally significant lands, particularly those on the Florida Forever priority list. These include isolated pine rocklands in Miami-Dade County, a corridor of panther habitat through which the endangered cats travel from Big Cypress National Preserve to the Caloosahatchee River, the Green Swamp between Tampa and Orlando, the land surrounding natural springs and the shores of the Indian River Lagoon.
