Natural Resources in Florida
The League of Women Voters of Florida supports state legislation for energy conservation and greater use of renewable sources like solar energy. The League supports policies that promote conservation of freshwater and its availability for environmental, public, agricultural, industrial, and mining uses on a priority basis. LWVFL also supports legislation to ban oil and gas drilling off Florida’s coast, as well as funding for public transportation.
Key issues include:
- Funding Florida Forever of the Water and Land Legacy Act/Protect our state parks
- Ban “fracking” in Florida
- Restore and protect our water and aquifers
- Promote a carbon-free Florida
- Sustainability and adaption planning for climate change
