Tourist will benefit from healthy Lakes and Springs in Florida.  Amendment 1 is targeting land purchases to help save Florida Water Resources. 

Many outlets from our aquifers known as Springs, are now likely going to benefit from the Amendment 1 spending program, this will benefit the aquifer feeding our springs, Truly many of our springs are now protected but will be better if all goes well. Florida is focusing Millions of Dollars on ground water, springs and drinking water. As we require more freshwater to grow our crops and maintain our lifestyles, the necessity of conservation efforts becomes more apparent every day.  The old practice of sending 100% of Spring Flow to the Atlantic ocean or Gulf of Mexico is seen as part of the problem reducing Beneficial Recharge of the Aquifer.  The health of the aquifer and Florida’s many springs is directly related to our actions.  Protecting springs and the Floridan aquifer for the future of natural habitats, drinking water supplies and the benefit of the next generation of Floridians is critically important according to Florida Environmental Officials.  Environmentalist flock to Florida to be part of this new Amendment 1 effort.  Environmental Tourism.

According to Florida DEP Officials, "Florida’s springs are some of the most fascinating geological features on the planet. Flowing from the deep Floridan aquifer, their cool, clear waters have provided habitat to humans and wildlife for thousands of years, and have drawn visitors from around the world. We are fortunate to live in a state where we can access these unique, natural resources through numerous State Parks, private concessions and public lands."  It is important that we do not send our best water to the ocean only to recover and de-salt ocean water to send back to the population centers of the state.  

According to Environmental Experts, "As we require more freshwater to grow our crops and maintain our lifestyles, the necessity of conservation efforts becomes more apparent every day. The health of the aquifer and Florida’s many springs is directly related to our actions, as individuals, as communities. Protecting springs and the Floridan aquifer for the future of natural habitats, drinking water supplies and the benefit of the next generation of Floridians is critically important".  Now with Amendment 1 the citizens have given the go ahead to save our aquifer.  Buying up outlet land is not the answer, buying up lands to stop the input of storm-water rapid drains and SED drain from utilities is at the top of the list for reform.  The Citizens have spoken!  Environmental Tourist can bring their interest and take home reform to the planet that they found in Florida.

The health of the the People of Florida the aquifer and Florida’s many springs is the goal of Amendment 1.  Come to Florida and be a part of Future Environmental Reform.

Governor Rick Scott is the "Real Deal", Agencies that have expanded over the past 10 years must now stop their regulatory ways.  Who needs big government except maybe the employees.
Community Action Groups historically funded by DEP are now asked to fund themselves.  Big Government usually starts with a great sounding name like "Springs Protection".
Next comes regulation in the form of Rules and Grants to expand regulation at the County and City level.  Finally, regulators become too big and bloated in their quest to take over the lives of the people.  
Springs Protection has become a magnet for anti growth spokesmen with fat state contracts to "Educate the Public".  
The people are joining forces with Governor Scott and the Legislature to regain control of Florida's Economy.  
Tourist, get ready for a positive repeatable experience when you come to Florida.

Marion County EDC to take on the failing EDC Ocala and high unemployment.  Taking no tax money, EDC Marion County challenges EDC Ocala to give back 6 figure salaries.  Setting a $5,000 per month salary limit for the Ocala EDC, the new council declared more that $5,000 per month as wasteful when an estimated 1 in 5 Ocala workers are unemployed.  Marion County EDC Executive Director Don Browning pleged a full year of $ 0.00  salary.  All funding will go directly to fight unemployment.  60 new Bottled Water Jobs will focus world attention on the 1,000,000,000,000 gallons of pure Spring Water we send to the ocean daily from Marion County.  One day 10 % of the wasted springs output will go to fund numerous programs in Marion County.  "We currently are wasting our greatest asset",  stated Water Czar Bob Burton.
