Kieran Boodram started this petition to Representative Vern Buchanan and

HRK holdings ( a private company caused algae bloom/red tide in SouthWest Florida by dumping polluted water) should be taxed for dumping polluted water into our water’s instead of increasing taxes for the taxpayers because the taxpayers did not contribute to this environmental damage.  Since Easter 2021, a reservoir in Piney Point, Fl (which is owned by HRK holdings) has been dumping over 30 million gallons of water containing phosphate and nitrogen into Tampa Bay from a reseivor. Phosphate and nitrogen are nutrients for the enviornment, however too much phosphate and nitrogen in the water causes algae to grow faster than ecosystems can handle. Large growths of algae are called algae blooms and they can severely reduce or eliminate oxygen in the water, leading to illnesses in fish and the death of large numbers of fish. Since the company dumping this water is millions of dollars in debt  ( which means that they may not be able to pay for the enviornmental damage) , taxpayer's taxes will be increased by the state so that the government is "able to have funding to recover waters in SouthWest Florida". Florida has the funding, but they are trying to take advantage of taxpayer's. The government of Florida should be taxed to fix this enviornmental damage rather then taxpayers because they're responsible for regulating polluted reseivors such as the one in Piney Point, Fl.
