Bruce Ritchie: Will there be any opposition to conservation amendment?

Posted by Mike Confino, July 11, 2014

With a Florida Chamber of Commerce poll last week showing strong support for the proposed conservation lands amendment, the question lingers: Whether there will be organized opposition?

Amendment 1 would earmark one-third of documentary stamp tax revenue for 20 years to the state Land Acquisition Trust Fund. Supporters say the amendment is needed because state land-acquisition programs have been starved for money since 2009.

State analysts estimate the measure would provide $19 billion for environmental restoration and land-buying over 20 years, but supporters say the figure should be estimated at $10 billion.
