Gov. DeSantis signs sea level rise and flooding package
Gov. Ron DeSantis has signed a pair of bills to address the impact of climate change and sea level rise.
The measures were among the Governor’s priorities. House Speaker Chris Sprowls similarly marked them as top priorities.
“Today, we probably take the most significant steps that have been taken in Florida in quite some time,” DeSantis said. “We’re establishing immediate and multi-year plans to tackle statewide flooding and coastal resilience.”
Flanked by key lawmakers and environmental agency personnel, DeSantis signed the measures at Rusty Bellies Waterfront Grill in Tarpon Springs, Sprowls’ hometown and part of his district.
