Florida Legislature Is Out of Touch with Voters

August 22nd, 2012 by  

There is significant voter interest in the development of renewable energy in Florida that is not being reflected by the state’s government representatives. A recently conducted poll has highlighted this disparity. Strong support was shown for many of the same policies becoming common in other parts of the country, though this support has not been expressed by the legislature.

Out of all of those surveyed, 69 percent said that they support legislation that would require utilities to produce a greater percentage of electricity from renewable sources.

And even with the economic slump, 57 percent still said that they were willing to pay at least 50 cents more per month on their electric bill to help fund renewable energy development.
