Orange, FL Dem Party Resolution against Sabal Trail pipeline

Florida has come alive against the Sabal Trail pipeline, and the Orange County Democratic Executive Committee (DEC) passed a resolution against it on Monday February 20, 2017, Normalized almost three years after the Lowndes County Democratic Committee passed a similar resolution. The Orange DEC resolution goes further, demanding divestment from Sabal Trail and all its parent companies by its members and by public bodies. Orange DEC is communicating with all the other county parties in Florida. Osceola County DEC has already passed a similar resolution, and it is on the agenda elsewhere.
