BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. — Florida took another big step forward as leaders work to restore the Everglades and protect the state’s water quality and environment.
At a news conference Tuesday morning in Bonita Springs, Gov. Ron DeSantis signed an executive order that includes a proposed $3.5 billion over four years for Everglades restoration and protection of Florida water resources.
“Time and time again, Governor DeSantis makes promises, and he delivers on those promises. If his first term is any indication of what he can accomplish, Floridians and the great state of Florida will see a historic commitment become a reality,” Everglades Trust CEO Anna Upton said.
