"In a year when the state faces a nearly $4B shortfall, this is likely to be more than just an exercise; and with the high proportion of freshman members, there is less familiarity than past years with the importance of Florida’s environmental programs."

I don't know that teh headline is accurate: Wildlife agencies must give budgets and plans in response to probable budgets to the legislatures anywhere.
As in the Bush years, nonprofits, and people like YOU must take up the lobbying to prevent permanent loss and extinction in the face of those elected by interests that want to exploit the land.
