Sugar wants your water and they’re using Congress to take it!

Lobbyists for US Sugar and Florida Crystals are trying to slip in language to the federal Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) of 2020 that will make toxic discharges more likely and starve the Everglades and Florida Bay of the freshwater they desperately need.

This effort, being spearheaded by RICK SCOTT and ALCEE HASTINGS would reserve Florida’s water for corporate agricultural use south of Lake Okeechobee to the detriment of the drinking water supply for almost 9 million Floridians, public health and our environment, especially the Everglades.

We're fighting with everything we've got but we can't do it without you. Add your voice to ours by sending a quick email to your federal lawmakers.

It's wonky, we explain it here.
