ENVIRONMENTAL GROUPS JOIN TOGETHER TO BLAST PRES. BUSH ON OFFSHORE OIL DRILLING - Mitch Perry05/17/04
Today in Tallahassee, members of two major environmental organizations came together to unveil a new Television ad to be broadcast in Tampa, Orlando and Washington D.C. that they say sets the record straight about President Bush's support for drilling off the western coast of Florida.

Joining the League of Conservation Voters at the News Conference in Tallahassee
Were members of the state and National branch of the nascent group, Environment 2004.
That organization released an updated version of its report from a year ago: Destroying An American Treasure: The Bush Environmental Record in Florida. The League of Conservation Voters is one group that is working with Environment2004, who says their mission is concentrating on certain key states where they believe their work could influence local and national elections.
Deb Callahan from the League of Conservation Voters says the update report on the George Bush's environmental record is instructive for those citizens who may not be aware of what the President's policies mean for Florida's environment (roll tape#2 o.q."that people just don't support ")
