Re: House Bill 608
Regional planning councils and opportunity of developers
to be heard.

This Bill apparently requires regional planning councils to afford
land developers with an opportunity to appear and present testimony
proposals before the council with respect to any hearings or other
action to be undertaken by the council which would affect the
developer's interests,and require the council to provide developers
with notice.

Are we interested in requiring the regional planning councils to
simultaneously provide water management districts with notice
similar to that provided the land developer?


Re: House Bill 205
Designates several large springs within the district as
areas of critical State concern.

Does the district have any ongoing construction which may be halted
or otherwise affected by this designation? Has the district taken
a position on this bill at all?


Am I going to register as a lobbyist this year?
