Legislative Alert of the "Florida Springs and Aquifer Act"
This bill is on the Appropriations Committee Agenda
(http://flsenate.gov/Committees/Show/AP/MeetingNotice/2701) this Tuesday,
April 22 at 9 AM. All those who oppose this sweeping onerous approach by our
Republican majority Senate and House should contact the committee members
below immediately, either by email today and/or by phone tomorrow.
CS/CS/SB 1576: Springs (http://flsenate.gov/Session/Bill/2014/1576)
As written, this bill is loaded with serious financial consequences to the
state budget, county and municipal budgets, as well as to individual
homeowners. Although the intent of the bill is to fund projects that
improve water quality in the springs, in fact, most of the millions
dedicated in the bill will be spent justifying and funding an added
bureaucracy designed to take full control of the ownership and operation of
our septic systems, and the ability to set fees for whatever action they
feel is necessary. The bill even grants water management districts the
authority to identify land for acquisition that, in their opinion, and in
the name of public interest, will prevent harm to water quality. There is
no provision in the bill to provide oversight of rule-making or
recommendations for land acquisition.
Property owners should look carefully at SB 1576 - be very wary of it and
those who support it. If you would like to express your thoughts about SB
1576 to the members of the Appropriations Committee, which is the next
committee stop for this bill, please do so without delay.

"It is sufficiently obvious, that persons and property are the two great
subjects on which Governments are to act; and that the rights of persons,
and the rights of property, are the objects, for the protection of which
Government was instituted. These rights cannot well be separated."
