Hunting and fishing constitutional amendment reels in Senators, heads to ballot

As a lifelong resident of Florida, I’ve been fortunate to experience firsthand the beauty of our state’s natural environment. From hunting and fishing as a kid growing up in Central Florida, to now serving as a state senator, I understand the importance of conserving and protecting Florida’s unique, beautiful environment. That’s why as Chair of the Appropriations Committee on Agriculture, Environment and General Government I’m thrilled that our 2023 budget proposal will inject historic funding into conservation efforts around the state. 

The proposed funding would go towards critical conservation projects like protecting our coasts from harmful algal blooms and restoring the Everglades. It would also help mitigate the impact of climate change on our state’s delicate ecosystems. With this historic investment, we have the opportunity to ensure that future generations of Floridians can continue to enjoy the natural wonders of our state.

This funding is not just a win for the environment, but also for our state’s economy. Florida’s natural resources draw in millions of tourists each year, supporting jobs and boosting our local economies. By investing in conservation now, we’re not only protecting our state’s natural beauty, but also securing our economic future. I’m proud to send this budget recommendation to the Governor’s desk and I look forward to witnessing the positive impact it will have on Florida’s environment and communities.
