STOP THE LAND GRAB

After decades of planning, study, and implementation -- and $5.5 billion invested, the Everglades Restoration Project is working. Now, environmental special interests want to disrupt that project and spend $500 million just to buy more land, even though doing so will do little or nothing to restore or protect the Everglades. There is NO science to support this land grab, and wasting $500 million will divert money that could be better spent on real restoration. We urge you to oppose this land grab and finish the real work of protecting and restoring the Everglades.

FINISH THE JOB

Florida taxpayers, farmers, and businesses have spent more than $10 billion to restore and protect the Everglades, and another $5.5 billion in work is planned.  And it’s working. Water quality in the Everglades today is far better than the Federal Government even requires. Now, however, special interests want to spend $500 million of restoration money just to buy more land, even though doing so will do little or nothing for the Everglades. There is NO science to support this land grab, and it will divert resources away from the real work of restoration. We urge you to oppose this land grab and finish the real work of protecting and restoring the Everglades.
