The River of Grass Coalition is a broad-based, grassroots collective of individual citizens, community leaders and municipalities -- as well as businesses, civic, industry and environmental organizations -- that endorses the state of Florida's acquisition of U.S. Sugar Corporation land for the purposes of providing clean and abundant fresh water for Florida's growing human and environmental needs. The Coalition's mission is to promote the acquisition of U.S. Sugar Corp. land that is needed to ensure the flow of clean and abundant water through the Everglades to support South Florida's tourist, boating, fishing and agricultural industries. Hundreds of thousands of good-paying Florida jobs depend on these industries. Florida must act to secure the land now, while it is available from a willing seller.
