Is There A There There In Environmental Law?, A. Dan Tarlock 2018 Chicago-Kent College of Law

Is There A There There In Environmental Law?, A. Dan Tarlock

Florida Water Resource Development: A Call For Statewide Leadership, Charles R. Fletcher 2018 Florida State University College of Law

Florida Water Resource Development: A Call For Statewide Leadership, Charles R. Fletcher

Florida State University Journal of Land Use and Environmental Law

In his article, Florida Water Resource Development: A Call for Statewide Leadership, Charles R. Fletcher argues that Florida's current drought is due to a lack of statewide leadership in water resource planning and development. In discussing how Florida might improve its system, Mr. Fletcher surveys water resource development in North Carolina, New York, Texas, Kansas, Arizona, and California. These states offer alternatives to Florida's current system, and Mr. Fletcher identifies a number of proposals to effectively increase water resource development in Florida without the need for revision of Florida's administrative water use permitting system.
