Florida Governor, Ron Desantis (Republican), took over the office at the beginning of 2019. Many Floridians and onlookers were afraid of the governor’s dismissal of Climate Change during his campaign; however, his new policies to protect water quality has surprised many critics.
Desantis has earmarked 2.5 billions dollars for water quality monitoring programs throughout the state, establish a resiliency office, establish a task force to take on the blue-green algae problem, and a 17,000-acre everglades reservoir in farm fields south of Lake Okeechobee.
