I asked Miami Dade County Commissioner Xavier Suarez why he was the only County Commmissioner to vote no on both motions and he said that he gave FPL a fair chance to present their case but he believes they came up short. There was over 4 hours of testimony and there was a previous meeting on Dec. 14 when the quorum of the commission was lost so they had to schedule this second meeting. I have 4 videos of the proceedings - I will post more tomorrow. This is the first one. Gimleteye was at the hearing and did a post on it. He said about the Yes vote: "The public will lose more high quality wetlands, against the county's own code, and those 'radial collector wells' that constitute the biggest assault against a national park in US history will only require 'monitoring'."
