‘Forever’ May Be Too Long For One Florida Program

January 22nd, 2009 by flanews

Governor Charlie Crist may use his veto pen to save some Florida wildlife. Lawmakers voted to cut four million dollars from the Florida Forever program. The program uses state money to buy land and keep it from being developed. Crist will look over the proposed spending cut and see if the state can afford to spare the program.

Im concerned about Florida Forever, and Im looking very closely at what level of change we can bring to bare with what the budget was coming out of special session as it relates to restoring Florida Forever. Obviously my heart and soul are in the environment and if theres a way to get there I want to do it, said Crist.

Since 2006, the state has purchased more than half a million acres through the Florida Forever program.
