Florida Governor Ron DeSantis spoke on the inland side of Tampa Bay today as he announced a $276 million state program to support flood and sea level rise mitigation. The funds are one part of a comprehensive state level infrastructure program to support the incredible growth within Florida.
Even without a state income tax Florida is taking in historic revenue from growth. That revenue is being used to build up emergency reserve funds in the event of storms or severe tropical weather impacts, at the same time funds are being used to proactively develop systems to mitigate flooding events at the coastal and inland regions.
During the second half of his remarks today, Governor DeSantis also contrast and reaffirmed his position on the principles of respect for individual rights of all Florida citizens and pushed-back against the need for government intervention or mandates around COVID. Essentially DeSantis recommended that other state governors stop doing stupid stuff. WATCH:
