Miccosukee Tribe opposes new Everglades bill
Facebook Twitter Email

An attorney for the Miccosukee Tribe of Florida criticized a bill passed by the Florida Senate that changes deadlines in the cleanup of the Everglades.

The tribe is battling the federal and state governments about the $8 billion effort. It has won at least three court decisions affecting the cleanup and its participation in the cleanup.

The Supreme Court is being asked by water managers in Florida to hear one of the cases. The court has asked the Department of Justice for its views back in January but no brief has been submitted.
