Southwest Florida Alliance of Chambers State Legislative Priorities for Water Quality

The Southwest Florida Alliance of Chambers is a coalition of Southwest Florida chambers of commerce committed to advocating at the local, state and federal levels to improve Southwest Florida’s quality of life and to serve as a catalyst for positive change impacting business, environment and tourism.

We are diligently working with our elected leaders to improve water quality and mitigate the devastating impacts on our tourism-based economy from the harmful algal blooms that had a significant economic impact in 2018 and threaten the region’s environment, human health, recreational industry, and a cross-section of business interests.

The Southwest Florida Alliance of Chambers supports the strong commitments to water quality, Everglades restoration, and significant funding levels in Governor DeSantis’ Executive Order (19-12) and asks for the support of our state delegation to appropriate funds and take action to combat Florida’s water quality crisis.
