Mr. Derrill S. McAteer, Chairman
Southwest Florida Water
Management District
P. O. Box 1072
Brooksville, Florida 33512

RE: Orientation of Legislators

Dear Derrill:

It would be appropriate to make a special effort toward
the orientation of some legislators.

Senator Alan Trask has been appointed to the Senate
Natural Resources Committee for the first time. He also
will be sitting on the Appropriations Subcommittee which
considers natural resources and environmental regulation
matters.

Senator Warren Henderson continues to be on the Senate
Natural Resources Committee. He has become somewhat familiar
with SWFWMD but should have a more particular interest now
that Sarasota County is coming into the District.

Senator Guy Spicola continues as chairman of the Natural
Resources Committee and,as you know, is very knowledgeable
about many of the problems. He will also be serving on the
Appropriations Committee but not on the subcommittee in which
we are most interested and will continue as a member of the
Rules Committee.

Senator Brantley listed as a matter of major importance the
shortage of drinking water supply, charged the committee
with the responsibility of reviewing the water management
districts to assure an adequate water supply, to determine
where the supplies are and to develop the capability of
transferring water from one place to another.

Senator Betty Castor, though not serving on the more directly
related committees, has been named to served on the Govern-
mental Operations Committee. Her experience as chairman

of the Hillsborough County Commission has exposed her to many
phases of the water management problem, and I believe that we
should make a special effort to give her a briefing of some
specific problems facing the District.

Senator Don Chamberlin, who defeated Senator Deeb, is not on
any of the directly related committees but certainly will be
concerned about water management. I think we are in a better
position than anyone else to supply him with an accurate
assessment of the problems and possible solutions.

We have several new representatives in the District. These
include:

Polk County
Bob Crawford Winter Haven
Beverly Burnsed Lakeland
Gene Ready Lakeland

Pinellas County
Don Poindexter St. Petersburg
Tom Woodruff St. Petersburg
Dorothy Sample St. Petersburg

Hillsborough County
Pat Frank Tampa

Sarasota County
Osley Saunooke Sarasota
Ted Ewing Venice

There may be others from some portions of the District, but
these are the principal people.

I would like to discuss this more specifically with you and
Don at the earliest possible time.

Sincerely,



L. M. Blain
