It’s safe to say that we may all feel a bit of the 2024 legislative session PTSD that Gil Smart described today,  but today’s livestream discussion also outlined some bright spots to be proud of, as well as plenty of reasons to keep fighting.

But much work remains, as polluting industries continue to lobby for favors from Tallahassee lawmakers.

Thanks to everyone that tuned in with us today. You can review our big takeaways from session by viewing our Post-Session Report, available now at our Legislative Accountability hub.
