The Florida Senate

SB 326 — Powers and Duties of the Department of Environmental Protection

by Senator Hays

This summary is provided for information only and does not represent the opinion of any Senator, Senate Officer, or Senate Office.

Prepared by: Environmental Preservation and Conservation Committee (EP)

The bill amends s. 253.7827, F.S., to remove an obsolete reference relating to right-of-way access in Marion County across portions of the Cross Florida Greenway (CFG). The bill also repeals s. 253.783, F.S., relating to the surplus and exchange procedures specific to CFG lands. The repeal of the specific CFG surplus and exchange procedures will allow the Department of Environmental Protection’s (DEP) Office of Greenways and Trails to follow current DEP Division of State Lands procedures for the surplus and exchange of conservation lands.

If approved by the Governor, these provisions take effect July 1, 2013.

Vote: Senate 40-0; House 117-0
