Today, Governor Rick Scott joined members of the Clewiston and Belle Glade communities to highlight his proposed $50 million investment to expedite repairs for the federally operated Herbert Hoover Dike at Lake Okeechobee. This funding is part of the Governor’s historic $1.7 billion recommended investment for Florida’s environment and will build on the $50 million in this year’s state budget to kick-start critical repairs to the Herbert Hoover Dike. Governor Scott is the first governor in Florida history to invest state money into this critical federal project. In October, the Governor secured the commitment of White House Director of the Office of Management and Budget Mick Mulvaney to accelerate the completion of repairs to Florida’s Herbert Hoover Dike. See more HERE.
