Senate budget head seeks $2.5 billion water quality package

A Senate bill would offer the vehicle for Gov. Ron DeSantis to fulfill his ambitious environmental agenda.

SB 1878, filed by Senate budget chair Rob Bradley, would earmark $625 million on a recurring basis to the Everglades and other water quality projects.

This bill would continue the four-year, $2.5 billion commitment in DeSantis’ first budget.

The request from the Fleming Island Republican jibes with a goal from the Governor to get $625 million per year.

DeSantis rolled out the pitch at a press conference in Naples last September.
