On July 26th, the state's Environmental Regulation Commission passed this proposed rule by a 3-2 vote. In early August, the Seminole tribe challenged the rule in state court, stating that Florida had violated procedures in rushing the rule and had cut short public comment periods. Furthermore, they claim that the rule does not protect tribal communities. On September 13th, the challenge was dismissed because the tribe filed at 5:02pm, and the deadline was 5:00pm. Any day, the rule will go to the EPA to either approve or reject.
