Florida will set aside $100 million each year for a conservation land acquisition program under a bill passed by the Senate.
The Senate recently unanimously approved the bill.
“The bill ensures the money dedicated to the Florida Forever program will be strictly for land acquisition and preservation,” said Senator Rob Bradley.
The bill prohibits the money from being spent on administrative and technical costs.
“The measure better reflects the will of voters who in 2014 passed a constitutional amendment dedicating a portion of real estate taxes to land conservation,” said Bradley.
