Say 'Yes' to Amendment 1: Water and Land Conservation



Press Release from CCA Florida

Florida's Water and Land Legacy, the Vote Yes on Amendment 1 campaign, today announced the support of Coastal Conservation Association Florida for Amendment 1, the Water and Land Conservation Amendment.



"Few issues are more important than protecting and preserving the quality of Florida's coastal waters," said Allison DeFoor, chair of Florida's Water and Land Legacy campaign. "Water quality is important to people and to wildlife. CCA Florida's members are out on the water every day and understand to importance of Amendment 1 to protecting the quality of our coastal waters. We're proud to welcome them to the growing list of organizations that have endorsed Amendment 1."



"Floridians love enjoying our state's unique outdoor activities and one-of-a-kind coastal areas and waterways," said Fred Crabill, CCA Chairman. "Amendment 1 will ensure that these precious natural treasures remain protected for future generations, so that they can enjoy them the same way we do. That's good news for CCA Florida members and all Floridians."



Amendment 1 would set aside one-third of documentary stamp revenue (collected when real estate is sold) for conservation measures aimed at protecting drinking water sources, restoring the Everglades, and reviving the state's historic commitment to preserving natural lands and wildlife habitat. Amendment 1 is not a tax increase. For nearly 20 years, Florida used this funding source to protect natural areas, wildlife habitat, and preserve water quality but, in recent years, the funding has been diverted to other purposes.
