About

Join us on Earth Day during a press conference on the recent "Transportation Bills" and show our state legislators and Gov. DeSantis that Florida's natural resources are worth saving! WHAT: Florida Senate Bill 7068 & House Bill 7113 are currently being voted on in our state legislature and would fund 3 unnecessary tollroads through our state's remaining natural lands. If voted in, the tollroads would: -Serve as a catalyst for sprawl -Fragment our wildlife corridors, making it harder for the Florida black bear and panther, among other species, to even survive -Exacerbate our state's existing water problems -Cost taxpayers between $10M-$40M+/mile -Many other adverse environmental actions Show up in support of these bills getting defeated by Florida's grassroots activist network. WHY: Since the press will be there, having plenty of people at this event will help to drive the message home to our politicians. They'll see our concerned faces in the paper or on the news and know that Floridians want to protect what they love.
