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.
Mayor Frank Hibbard and the leaders of several key City departments joined the tourism stakeholders for a community conversation on Wednesday, May 12th at the Sandpearl Resort. Tourism leaders had candid discussions about the state of the industry along with encouragements and vision setting for what is to come. Tourism is back in full swing in Clearwater with strong bookings throughout the summer! Thank you to Mayor Hibbard for this dialogue and to the Sandpearl for hosting.
