More funding for everglades restoration and water quality

Florida – Gov. Ron DeSantis is seeking more funding for Everglades restoration and water quality projects in his upcoming budget.
At a news conference on Tuesday, DeSantis made the announcement at the South Florida Water Management District Pump Station in Miami.
According to DeSantis, he’s proposing more than $960 million for the Everglades and water projects in the next legislative session.
It would bring the four-year total spending on environmental initiatives in Florida to around $3 billion, above his initial goal of around $2.5 billion, DeSantis said.
Over the previous four years the total is about double the funding for similar initiatives, DeSantis said.
