CFL in the FL Capitol
Advocacy in 2018 - CFL in the Capitol
In addition to providing expertise to facilitate land protection projects, CFL also engages in education and advocacy efforts in order to achieve its mission and vision.
From January to March, our executive director met with several of Florida’s political leaders during the legislative session to advocate for meaningful conservation funding in the 2018 state budget.
With the legislative session now over, we are excited to report that the 2018-2019 state budget appropriated $100.8 million for land conservation programs, including Florida Forever, Rural and Family Lands, and the Florida Communities Trust. This is a step in the right direction and provides continued hope for a brighter conservation future for Florida.
