Sure, that title is hyperbolic but the results of HB-991, should it become law, would be absolutely horrible for Florida’s environment. It won’t be Florida Republicans destroying the environment but their corporate puppet-masters. The bill has already passed the house and is headed for the state senate where it will hopefully be stopped. How bad is it? So bad that Debra Harrison of the National Parks Conservation Association said “In 30 years of working to protect Florida’s unique natural wonders, never have I witnessed such an egregious and blatant dismantling of those protections.”
Here’s hoping the bill is stopped before it becomes law!
