Environmental representatives lament budget for land-buying, question outcome of land sales

Some environmental group representatives on Wednesday cast doubt on whether the state could sell $50 million worth of land to buy more conservation land as provided in the 2013-14 state budget approved by the Legislature.

The $74.5 billion budget approved by the Legislature will be sent to Gov. Rick Scott for his signature, and his line-item veto pen. The budget includes the $50 million in land sales for new purchases plus $10 million in general revenue and $10 million in trust fund for land-buying. Scott had requested $75 million, including $25 million in general revenue and $50 million from land sales.
