That’s why a group of farmers, ranchers and sportsmen are urging Floridians to vote no on 13. The coalition includes the Florida Farm Bureau Federation (FFBF), Florida Cattlemen’s Association (FCA), National Rifle Association (NRA), Unified Sportsmen of Florida, Future of Hunting in Florida and Florida Sportsmen United Political Committee. Dr. Liz Steele, a veterinarian in Zolfo Springs, Florida, explained to Southeast AgNet’s Randall Weiseman why they are urging Floridians to vote no.
