CCA Florida commends Senator Joe Negron for taking the lead in addressing the harmful discharges into the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee estuaries. Making Florida's water a priority as incoming President of the Senate should provide legislators and others the jump start needed to move forward on real, workable solutions to problems that have existed far too long. With hard work, solving the dilemma of our waterways could become this legislature's legacy to the people of Florida. We look forward to learning details about the proposal to purchase land in the "Everglades Agricultural Area" and other projects to clean the water and send it south, providing much needed relief to our rivers, the Everglades and Florida Bay. Our residents, visitors, businesses and members support a broad comprehensive approach to this economic and environmental disaster.
Thank you Senator Negron for making this issue the priority for Florida's next legislative session
