Support the Oil Ban Amendment to FL Constitution
As the unprecedented oil catastrophe has now directly impacted Florida, gutting our economy and destroying the environment of the Gulf, NOW is the time for our state government to act. The Save Our Beach and Shores Coalition wishes to revise the Florida Constitution to prohibit the exploration for, the drilling for, the extraction of and the production of oil beneath all Florida waters from the mean high water line to the seaward limit of Florida's boundaries.
We need to send a personal message to our Legislators that we, as citizens, communities, businesses, and organizations, do not want risky drilling activity off our shores. And more importantly, it’s effective to make this a voter's issue on the November 2, 2010 ballot.
Other ACTION ITEMS to Participate in:
