Tallahassee, Fla. – Associated Industries of Florida’s Senior Vice President of State and Federal Affairs Brewster Bevis released the following statement regarding the Florida House’s bipartisan passage of HB 7003:
“Today, the Florida House took a giant step forward in adopting a policy that will better prepare Florida for current and future water challenges. HB 7003 creates sustainable solutions for growing our water supply, provides protections for our springs, and gives water managers additional options so that the regional needs of our state can be better met.
The Coalition appreciates the hard work of Representative Matt Caldwell and especially House Speaker Steve Crisafulli. Under this Speaker’s leadership, we are closer than ever before to making the adoption of a comprehensive water policy a reality.
As this bill heads to the Senate, the H2O Coalition will continue to advocate for a broad solution that increases our state’s commitment to solving water quality and quantity issues.”
