Senate Bill 1464,  the companion of House Bill 703 by Rep. Jimmy Patronis, R-Panama City, the controversial environmental regulation bill, wasn’t heard in the final meeting of a committee prompting the bill sponsor to declare the measure dead for the 2014 legislative session.

The Florida Current reports that several measures opposed by environmentalists, cities and counties had been taken out of the Senate bill and more were likely to be removed.
