Clean energy groups hails six legislators



“We appreciate these legislators for recognizing the fact that Florida needs to act soon to attract jobs in the clean energy sector, because that business is going to other states – and other countries – instead of to Florida,” said Susan Glickman of the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy.

The honorees are:  Sen. Lee Constantine, R-Orlando, and Rep. Adam Hasner, R-Delray Beach, called Pioneers for their leadership on clean energy in Florida.  Rep. Rick Kriseman, D-St. Petersburg, and Rep. Keith Fitzgerald, D-Sarasota, recognized as Heroes for their work to fight offshore oil drilling.  Sen. Nancy Detert, R-Venice, and Rep. Joseph Gibbons, D-Pembroke Park,  named Champions for sponsoring clean-energy legislation this session.
