Gulf Oil Spill - Take Action


Incoming House Speaker Dean Cannon and Senate President Mike Haridopolos have been the biggest proponents of offshore drilling in the legislature. The tragedy of the massive oil spill in the Gulf should be a wake-up call to both, that doing so would be a disaster for Florida’s environment and economy. Sign the open letter via Progress Florida to Rep. Cannon and Sen. Haridopolos demanding to know: will they still push for offshore drilling next legislative session?
