Speculation and doubts continue to rise concerning the future of the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP). Despite that Congress has approved $1.8 billion for the plan the funds still must be allocated. Finding the money for restoration projects from a cash strapped federal government in a time of war may be more difficult than overriding a veto from a lame duck President. The press has abounded these last few days with disheartening articles on the future of CERP. One is left to wonder if this is a desperate attempt to derail the plan by unduly influencing the press. The funds for this project have been approved and those who support the restoration of the Everglades will not be silenced or dissuaded. We must continue to move forward with each step of the Plan. The health and future of the entire state of Florida depends on the health and future of the Everglades. Not only are the Everglades an international treasure but, the source of life for many who live in this state. Stay informed and active on this issue and inform your local, state, and federal officials on your support for CERP.
I will not link to any sites on these articles, search and inform yourself. I would not support those who would act as a mouthpiece, for those who wish to subvert the will of the people.
