Default Florida : Call's needed !!!!

Tuesday, May 4, 2004 10:38 AM
YOUR VOICE IS URGENTLY NEEDED TO SUPPORT SB 540

Boaters and manatees won a significant victory when SB 540 passed the House of Representatives.

The Save the Manatee Club and other animal rights activists tried to defeat the bill, but were unsuccessful in their attempts.

The bill creates two studies which should help both manatees and boaters.

The first study is a sea grass study to determine manatee impacts on sea grass beds in and around power plant warm water discharges.

The second study asks FFWCC to look at creating a balance between recreational boating and manatee protection. It also will look at the question of whether slow speeds actually protect manatees. And, finally, it will look at the dangers for boaters associated with unlighted speed zone signs.

This good bill also says that when manatees in a`particular region have reached their "biological goal" then the FFWCC will give great weight to that fact if they feel additional speed zones are required in that same region.

The Governors office is taking tally of Yes & No "votes".
Please call the Governor's office TODAY 850-488-4441 and tell them:

1. Your are a Florida Resident -- give your city
2. You are a member of Standing Watch and or a recreational boater.
3. You support SB 540

The animal rights activists are flooding the Governor's office with "no" calls.
Please lend your "YES" voice to this effort
