WMNF Drive-Time News Monday | Listen to this entire show:
Tuesday in Orlando there will be a Congressional hearing on Floridaâ€™s water pollution rules. The federal Environmental Protection Agency has imposed numeric nutrient standards on Floridaâ€™s water bodies, but theyâ€™re being challenged by some business groups. Theyâ€™ll be well represented at the hearings called by U.S. Representative Cliff Stearns, which concerns Phil Compton, the Tampa Bay regional representative for Sierra Club Florida.
They are organizing a demonstration outside the Subcommittee on Water Resources and Environment hearing. It begins at 10 a.m. Tuesday at the University of Central Florida Alumni Center in Orlando.
