RE: EESC Legislation
I have reviewed the consolidated bill and think several changes
should be made to more accurately reflect our recommendations. I
have interlined these on the attached pages of the bill as
1. The consolidated bill provides for future Sunset review and
repeal in 1998. I do not remember this ever having been discussed
by the commission. See pages 3 and 42 for proposed changes.
2. Section 373.103 should be amended differently than proposed,
so as to be consistent with our recommendations for legislative
direction rather than future delegation. See page 16.
3. Time frames should be the same for consolidation of rules on
dredge and fill, wetlands protection and stormwater with
management and storage of surface water rules. These should be
adopted by October 1, 1989 to take effect January 1, 1990. See
pages 45 and 51.
4. All water management districts should be required to adopt
performance criteria for review of ground water discharge of
stormwater. See page 52. Also look at current section
403.812(1) (c), Fla. Stat. which required this of SFWMD by 1985.
In addition to the above consolidated bill we also need to
include the proposed Joint Resolution for NWFWMD and the NWFWMD
I will be out all day Monday but will be in my office all day
Tuesday, if you want to discuss.
Please also confirm that you will be here Wednesday, March 9, for
our meeting with the Tampa Tribune Editorial Board. We should get
together a few minutes before going to that meeting. Can you be
here by 2:00? If you can be here earlier, I'll be happy to take
you to lunch. (I still plan to try to catch a 5:15 flight to
Tallahassee after our meeting and will be driving my car to the
airport if you need a ride.)
