Re: House Natural Resources Select Committee
on Water Management
Indirectly I have learned that the Natural Resources
Committee of the House will continue to activate its Select Sub
Committee on Water Management Transfer Problems. The Chairman
is Representative Gene Hodges and members are Bess Craig, Mary
Ellen Hawkins, Bob McKnight and Jane Robinson. Gerald Fulford
also serves on the Committee ex-officio.
I have further learned that this group will be meeting in
West Palm Beach on August 25 and 26, probably for a briefing and
tour of the South Florida Water Management District (formerly C&FFCD).
The group is scheduled to meet in Tampa on September 9 and
in Naples September 10. They they will meet in Tallahassee on
October 8 and 9.
I think it is very important that you have one person as-
signed to attend and monitor each of these meetings. I have a con-
flict on August 25 and 26 and will not be able to attend that meeting.
September 9 is the date scheduled for the SWFWMD Workshop
but both of these could probably be handled.
The September Board meeting is scheduled for the same date
as the Naples hearing and the October Workshop and Board meetings
are scheduled for the dates of the October meetings.
I assume these have been coordinated by Dr. Tom Herbert.
Has he been in touch with you on this?
