ENVIRONMENTAL EFFICIENCY ACT OF 1986



Whereas, the Department of Environmental Regulation, the

Department of Natural Resources, the Department of Community

Affairs, the Department of Health and Rehabilitative Services,

the Florida Game and Fresh Water Fish Commission, the Department

of Agriculture and Consumer Services, the water management

districts, and the regional planning councils each administer

laws and rules pertaining to the protection of the environment

and public health; and

Whereas, in 1975 Legislature enacted the Florida Environ-

mental Reorganization Act of 1975, whose purpose was to promote

more efficient, effective and economical operation of environmen-

tal agencies and to promote the proper administration of Florida

landmark environmental laws; and

Whereas, subsequent to that legislation numerous

statutory additions and revisions have been enacted pertaining to

protection of the environment and public health; and

Whereas, the above agencies have subsequently adopted

numerous rules pursuant to these laws; and

Whereas, in many areas the environmental agencies overlap

and duplicate one another in the administration of these laws and

rules; and

Whereas, the resulting inefficiency caused by this

overlapping and duplication is costly, time consuming and waste-

ful of both public and private resources; and
