Action: CALL STATE LEGISLATORS NOW!

Deliver the Message: "Support amendments to eliminate loopholes and deficiencies in the 2016 water bills." SB 552 by Sen. Dean and HB 7005 by Rep. Caldwell. Bills will be considered this week.

The bills as currently written do not satisfy the needs of our waters and neglect many opportunities to create water policies that serve the public's interest. Various regulated industries, agriculture, and their lobbyists are leading a retreat from protective policies and are instead relying on the same tools that have, for decades, failed Florida's citizens and our waters.

WHAT'S THIS ABOUT?
In December, Sierra Club Florida and other Floridians' Clean Water Declaration campaign coalition partners -- including Space Coast Progressive Alliance -- delivered a letter signed by 106 organizations and businesses to Florida Senate President Andy Gardiner and House Speaker Steve Crisafulli, calling for real protection of the state's imperiled waterways. The letter was also sent to all 160 of Florida's state legislators urging them to amend SB 552 and HB 7005, because the proposed bills are weak with loopholes and deficiencies. Specific amendments are proposed -- but YOUR voice is needed to get action.
