Now that the 2016 legislative session is behind us, Florida Conservation Voters is looking to the upcoming elections as our best opportunity to elect candidates who, regardless of their party affiliation, will make protecting Florida’s environment and advancing clean energy policies a priority.
Before we can elect conservation champions, we have to take a look at how legislators voted on this year’s most important environmental issues. From land conservation to water quality, to energy and Everglades restoration, our 2016 Legislative Report provides you with an assessment of key bills that passed or failed, and also shows how legislators voted on those bills.
This report is not intended to be a “scorecard,” but we hope it will be the beginning of an accountability tool that voters can rely on as they choose who best represents their conservation values in Tallahassee.
