The EPA is Coming
This is from Carl Iken of the Treasure Coast Tea Party. If anyone has the time to research this, attend the meeting, and report on it, please follow the EPA link at the bottom of the posting.
Proposed Water Quality Standards for the State of Florida’s Lakes and Flowing Waters
The EPA is trying to regulate changes in Florida and ONLY Florida. As we know anytime the EPA or any government agency wants to “regulate” something it costs us more money. There are 3 hearings scheduled throughout Florida. If you can, try to attend one.
The dates of the hearings remain the same, but EPA has expanded the times for the hearings, and was able to move the Tallahassee hearing to a new, larger space. Below are the current times and locations for each date. Even with these changes, the afternoon sessions may be at capacity. Those concerned about seating or long waits should consider attending an earlier or later session.
