Florida Governor on SB 2508 – Environmental Resources

TALLAHASSEE, FL (STL.News) Governor Ron DeSantis released a statement of administration policy regarding Senate Bill (SB) 2508, Environmental Resources:

I have been a champion for Everglades restoration and oppose any measure that derails progress on reducing harmful discharges and sending more water to the Everglades.  Moreover, I reject any attempt to deprioritize the EAA Reservoir project south of Lake Okeechobee.

Rather than advancing legislation seeking to affect a major change in policy, SB 2508 is being rammed through the budget process, short-circuiting public engagement and leaving affected agencies in the dark.
