This is a plan by developers to fast track their projects because it would remove the Army Corps from any oversight and let the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) run wild and fill wetlands at their whim and to pay off political cronies.
We have seen the true colors of the DEP when it comes down to environment or corporations and there is no contest.
Thanks to Cris Costello of Sierra Club who is circulating the following email. Please follow the link to send an email to Secretary Noah Valenstein and ask him to delay this action so that the public may have the un-hurried opportunity to prevent this.
