Inventories of Critical Wetlands (Watch) – PASSED

CS/CS/SB 882 (Brodeur) requires each water management district governing board, in cooperation with local governments, to develop a list of critical wetlands for acquisition using funds from the Land Acquisition Trust Fund. The bill specifies criteria the water management districts should consider in designating a wetland for inclusion on the list. CS/CS/SB 882 passed the Senate (38-0) and the House (111-2) and is awaiting action by the Governor. (O'Hara)
