EPISODE DESCRIPTION

During this year’s legislative session, the Florida Legislature passed a number of bills that relate to the state’s environment. One of the most comprehensive of these bills is House Bill 999, which according to a collaborative report by the Miami Herald and Tampa Bay Times, “modifies a series of wetlands-related rules and ratifies the governor and Cabinet’s approval of 30-year leases of public lands in the Everglades to sugar companies.”

Numerous nonpartisan advocacy organizations, including Audubon Florida and the League of Women Voters of Florida, have made their voices heard about the contents of House Bill 999 throughout its development in the House of Representatives. For more information about the the bill and the effects that it might have on Florida’s wetlands if it is signed into law, I spoke with Eric Draper, Executive Director of Audubon Florida.
