Florida Conservation Voters Applauds the passage of Senator Bradley’s SB 370 as it moves to floor of Florida Senate.
Tallahassee, FL (January 11, 2018) – Today, Senator Rob Bradley’s Senate Bill 370 – Land Acquisition Trust Fund passed through the Senate Appropriations Committee. This was the bill’s final committee stop and it now heads to the floor of the Senate.
Florida Conservation Voters strongly supports SB 370 and applauds Senator Bradley’s unequivocal efforts to shepherd this bill through the legislative process. FCV also supports the addition of Amendment 697130, which further refines the type of expenses that may be funded using monies set aside in the Land Acquisition Trust Fund, bringing the state’s budget one step closer to honoring the will of the voters.
STATEMENT FROM ALIKI MONCRIEF, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, FLORIDA CONSERVATION VOTERS:
“Thanks to Senator Bradley’s leadership, we are closer than ever to securing a long-term funding plan to safeguard Florida’s most vulnerable natural areas and waters. And it couldn’t come at a better time. Each year, our state grows in residents and with visitors. With this bill, Senator Bradley is ensuring Florida’s growth is balanced with land conservation, now and in the future. FCV looks forward to working with Senator Bradley and House leadership to see this good legislation land on Governor Scott’s desk.”
