Keep Florida's Public Land and Beaches Publicly Owned
Title: Keep Florida's Public Land and Beaches Publicly Owned
The Florida Democratic Party supports protecting ownership of Florida's public lands and beaches.
WHEREAS, Florida's beaches and natural resources are important economic drivers and available for Floridians' wellness and leisure. The privatization of these areas will disrupt the economic advantages of small businesses and the tourism industry. Public access in Florida and across the U.S. is currently being targeted for privatization, which in turn will have a larger economic impact than just a lack of general experience to the public.
THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, the Florida Democratic Party opposes any effort to remove public land ownership from the public in the State of Florida.
BE IT ALSO RESOLVED, the Florida Democratic Party supports local, state, and federal policymakers in their effort to strengthen public land protections. The Florida Democratic Party concurs with the DNC Platform in protecting public lands from privatization and further encourages all elected Florida Democrats to act in support of this resolution.
