Senate Approves River and Lakes Bill Championed by Senator Bradley
Tallahassee – Senate Bill 234, filed by Senator Rob Bradley (R-Fleming Island), which appropriates $20 million annually for projects dedicated to the restoration of the St. Johns River and its tributaries or the Keystone Heights Lake Region passed the full Senate on Thursday, April 14th.
“The St. Johns River and Keystone Lakes define the character of the northeast region of our state,” said Senator Bradley, a lifelong resident of Clay County. “In addition to providing scenic beauty and recreational opportunities to local residents, these natural resources attract visitors from across the state and nation. I am proud that the Florida Senate recognizes the value of these resources to those of us who reside in northeast Florida and the state.”
The legislation appropriates funds from the Land Acquisition Trust Fund to be used for land management and land acquisition and for increasing recreational opportunities and access to the River and its tributaries or the Keystone Heights Lake Region. The bill now awaits action by the Florida House of Representatives.
