Sugarcane burning disproportionately impacts communities of color in the Glades where thick smoke looms for miles during the burning season. This bill curtails an impacted person's ability to sue, requiring they live within 1/2 mile of the farm in question to file a nuisance action.
Time is running out to oppose this bad bill. Gov. DeSantis has until Thursday to act in the interest of Floridians. Let him know where you stand.
We need your help spreading the word. This is about the rights of Floridians to protect themselves, and our ecosystems, from polluters.
Learn more about the impacts of sugarcane burning on communities south of Lake Okeechobee by listening to our recent Clean Water Conversation: Stop the Burn which featured representatives from Sierra Club's Stop the Sugar Field Burning campaign and passionate members of the communities that are most impacted.
