Editorial from the Miami Herald
Our state political leaders should be ashamed. In twisting the intent of Amendment 1, they have brazenly ignored the will of Florida voters.
But the ballot initiative, born of a wish to keep lawmakers from raiding money set aside to purchase and preserve Florida lands, was subverted and misappropriated by state legislators.
Now state environmentalists are fighting back with a lawsuit to stop this from happening next year. They deserve our support.
