Although this applies to the State of Florida, I thought everyone might be interested in this piece of legislature. On June 30, 2009, Governor Charlie Crist signed Senate Bill 2080, also called the Water Rights Bill.One of the provisions in the bill states that any landscape that fits the 9 principles of Florida-friendly planting, use the right plant in the right place, water efficiently, fertilize appropriately, mulch, attract wildlife, manage yard pests responsibly, recycle, reduce storm water runoff and protect the waterfront, supersedes and takes precedence over all other municipal, county and homeowner association rules, ordinances or laws. You need to read between the lines to realize the full impact of this law. Wasn't sure exactly which Forum to post this in. Are any other states moving in this direction? Thoughts and comments?
