the purchase of private land for protection for conservation and restoration.  If you are interested in this amendment, you can read about it here.

Specifically, the fund seeks to:

Funds the Land Acquisition Trust Fund to acquire, restore, improve, and manage conservation lands including wetlands and forests; fish and wildlife habitat; lands protecting water resources and drinking water sources, including the Everglades, and the water quality of rivers, lakes, and streams; beaches and shores; outdoor recreational lands; working farms and ranches; and historic or geologic sites, by dedicating 33 percent of net revenues from the existing excise tax on documents for 20 years.

The signature page has an address where you can send it if you are interested in signing (you have to be a registered Florida voter) or you can scan it and send it to her at
