Please Vote YES on Amendment 1

If you are a registered Florida voter please vote YES on Amendment 1 to help preserve and restore land to protect water quality, wildlife habitat and safeguard the aquifer that provides our drinking water.  The amendment will not create a new tax. It will set aside one-third of the existing documentary stamp tax on real-estate sales over 20 years for purchasing, managing and restoring conservation land.
