Dear Estus:


In response to your draft of Proposed Main
here Is my list of recommended changes:


Issues for the Water Supply Development & Funding Group,


Fundlno/Incentives/Economics


Section C needs to be moved ahead of A. It's difficult to make decisions about how to fund a
project until you know what it will cost and who will pay.

The current Section A 1, as written, limits the funding options to be considered to those listed in
the parentheses. Either delete the list or indicate this list to just to give examples.

Section B-Incentives #2 should be changed to a discussion of water permit term limits in general.
There may be benefits to granting longer period water permits if the resource gets something in return.
As proposed, we're giving away the public's resource indefinitely.

Section C-Economics delete #1c, it assumes there will be interjurisdictional water transfers.

I want to add that I would like to be able to participate on both subcommittees. I know that's probably not
possible, but both development and funding are Important components. Being the only Audubon
representative participating in this process, I am frustrated that I don't know how to clone myself

Let me know If you have any questions.

Sincerely,



Eva Armstrong
Government Relations Director-Florida
