There’s a bill in the Florida House to drill for oil
in a state park in the same aquifer we drink out of.
A group is organizing through
and reddit and elsewhere to oppose this bill:
An alliance of citizens committed to protecting the beautiful Blackwater
River State Forest from proposed House Bill 431, that would allow oil
and mining in the forest.
This is near Pensacola, and in our
Florida HB 431.

And here’s a petition to
Florida House of Representatives: Stop HB 431 – Protect Blackwater River State Forest from drilling and mining.
