FY15 Budget: Significant Reductions for Everglades Projects (USA)

Last week, Governor Rick Scott issued a statement regarding the U.S. President Obama’s budget that makes significant reductions to the Lake Okeechobee dike system and Everglades projects.

Last year, Florida communities experienced a rainy season that exposed the short comings of the federal government’s inaction in funding projects to protect South Florida estuaries,” said Governor Scott.

“Following review of the President’s proposed budget, it appears he is chosen to reduce funding to the Herbert Hoover Dike System at Lake Okeechobee by $11 million, and reduce funding to Everglades projects by $22 million.
