Johnson Engineering’s Professional Geologist, Kim Arnold, spent time at the Capitol in Tallahassee meeting with lawmakers about how geologists help protect water resources, manage minerals of economic importance, remediate contamination, and other issues vital to Florida.

A delegation from the Florida Association of Professional Geologists (FAPG) met with several House and Senate members in early November as part of the organization’s annual Lobby Day. In addition to sharing interesting rock and fossil specimens from the Florida Geological Survey, they discussed proposed legislation on several environmental and regulatory issues.

The group offered their specialized knowledge as a resource for lawmakers to better inform their constituents on the science behind headlines like the Piney Point incident and Surfside building collapse. FAPG hopes an enhanced collaboration between geologists and lawmakers will help shape effective, streamlined that will benefit all Floridians.
