Heads of the agencies that help manage Florida’s water supply told state lawmakers Tuesday it’s time to make smart water-management policies a legislative priority. The state’s water quality and water quantity problems don’t have clear quick fixes.
Water policy is the top concern for state Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam.
"There is now not a single corner of the state that is not impacted by this," he said.
Putnam asked lawmakers on two House committees to keep the long-term picture in mind when making any laws or spending money relating to water this session.
