TALLAHASSEE
Floridians will determine on March
9 who will control their water, adeci-
sion that one legislator said is more im-
portant than who should runfor presi-
dent.
"There is not one issue more impor-
tant to people than this issue of March
9," Sen. Philip Lewis, DWest Palm
Beach, said Tuesday of a proposed con-
stitutional amendment that will ap-
pear on the presidential preference pri-
mary ballot.
THE PROPOSAL would allow

water-management districts to levy a
tax on property in their areas to fi-
nance water planning and control oper-
ations.
"I'm shocked to go around and find
out people don't know it's on the bal-
lot," Lewis told the Senate Natural Re-
sources Committee.


Lewis urged lawmakers, conserva- I
tion groups and agricultural interests
to educate Floridians on the impor-
tance of passing the amendment.
PASSAG is ssential to giving
the six locally controlled district the
financing needed to draw up their
segment ofa state water-use plan, and
implementing it, he said.
"If that should fail, we've got two
alternatives, and the two alternatives
are ," he said.
"First, not to implement the water
plan. The other is to transfer water au-
thority to Tallahassee and make eu-
nuchs out of all these boards."
