The Frey Institute addressed environmental policy in the spring 2007 symposium, as global warming and water quality concerns make headlines across the country. Speakers during the event included academics, policymakers, elected officials and activists in the area. Speakers also addressed water policy, air policy and energy policy. The evening keynote address was given by former U.S. Sen. and Florida Gov. Bob Graham; Nat Reed, a former assistant secretary of the U.S. Department of the Interior; and Jake Varn, a development lawyer in Tallahassee. Alex Sink, then Florida's CFO, was scheduled to speak but was unable to join us at this event.
