State blocks Volusia's alternative plan to protect manatees

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - State officials says they have rejected Volusia County's manatee protection plan for fear of being sued by a manatee advocacy group.

Volusia's plan had emphasized tighter law enforcement instead of restricting the number of boat slips and marinas in the county. Had it been approved, Volusia would have been the first county in the state to test the approach.

State officials in Orlando yesterday said the threat of a lawsuit from the Save the Manatee Club soured them on Volusia's plan.
