    Wow. Huge loss for preservation. As if we did not already have out of control development, the Legislature and Governor DeSantis have paved (no pun) the way to make it much worse.

    "a new state law makes you risk everything if you challenge a development decision. For if you lose, you will be stuck paying the legal fees of the developer and the government.


    Gov. Ron DeSantis signed House Bill 7103 into law in May, ignoring the environmental community’s pleas to veto it. “Citizens won’t dare challenge development orders if they risk financial ruin,” warns the environmental champion 1000 Friends of Florida, which has filed suit against the law.

    Locally, immeditate need to focus on stopping the county from cutting a road through Deer Lake State Park and/or the state forest.

    Maybe you could organize a protest and march on the state capitol.

    Make your voice heard during the next election. That's the only way to stop these knuckleheads.
