Unlawful Excavation Bill Clears Hurdle in Florida House

In a 118-0 vote, the House passed House Bill 591, which protects the properties of entities like the Lake County Water Authority from unlawful excavations for archeological artifacts. Permits can be issued for archeological activities on state-owned land, but current law does not cover political subdivisions. The bill next goes to the Senate for consideration.
