From our sandy beaches, to our freshwater springs, to Americans Everglades, Florida’s natural resources define this state and are an important part of our economy and the quality of life of Florida’s Families. For that reason, Governor Scott is committed to providing significant funding to protect and restore our natural resources and to using sound science – not politics – to guide his environmental agenda.
Now with his “Let’s Keep Florida Beautiful” plan, Governor Scott is proposing a $1 billion investment in Florida’s waters – $500 million for alternative water supply and $500 million for springs restoration. This plan also commits to continuing the Governor’s efforts for Everglades restoration and allow the Department of Environmental Protection to issue tougher penalties for polluters and bad actors.
