Subject: Update on the Florida Office Of Greenways and Trails
Dear Friend of Florida Trails,

I wanted to share some wonderful news with you and explain what has just happened, and is expected to happen, as it relates to the Florida Office of Greenways and Trails (OGT). OGT is the reigning recipient of the National “Best Trails State” as awarded by American Trails and, as you know, is a highly valued partner. Again like last year, they were circled for elimination earlier this week by the Florida Senate despite their success in building partnerships and leveraging funding. However due to the enormous and coordinated grassroots support that was demonstrated by us last year, the threat for the most part was quickly dropped. We owe a special thank you to Senators Aronberg, Lawson and Baker of the Senate General Government Appropriations Committee! ....

Thank you and stay tuned. I hope to have an important announcement concerning the Florida Department of Transportation soon!!!!

Take Care.
Ken Bryan, Florida Director
Rails-to-Trails Conservancy
