Florida’s water was House Speaker Crisafulli’s top priority; now it waits
That bill “would radically change water policy in Florida in so many harmful ways that I can’t even fathom all the repercussions,” said Young, who runs the Clean Water Network.
As Crisafulli’s top priority, House Bill 7003, the water policy rewrite sponsored by Caldwell, was the first bill to pass the House this year. It cleared the lower chamber in early March with a 106-9 vote — but that’s as far as it went. The Senate had its own water bill that differed from the House version. Both fell victim to the early adjournment on April 28.
That was fine with Estus Whitfield of the Florida Conservation Coalition, which in 2012 delivered to Tallahassee a petition, signed by more than 15,000 people, demanding swift action in restoring the state’s ailing springs — a petition that the Legislature has largely ignored.
