A statement from Rep. Matt Caldwell following the President’s final approval of the EAA reservoir:
“I am proud to have led the House in passing the EAA reservoir. The final product balanced property rights with environmental stewardship, which is a result of putting priorities above politics.”
“The EAA reservoir and the balance of all our Everglades projects – including the Tamiami Trail, Herbert Hoover Dike, and Kissimmee River projects – are finally on track for completion due to the hard work of Florida’s Legislature, Cabinet, and Governor. Now with President Trump’s signature we have achieved a milestone in restoration and have moved even closer to the reality of a functional Everglades ecosystem.”
An eight-year veteran of the Florida Legislature, Rep. Caldwell has led, funded, sponsored, and co-sponsored policy on issues as diverse as water, state natural resources, environmental restoration, growing jobs, cutting taxes, assisting veterans, instituting criminal justice reform, and promoting Florida agriculture workers and goods.
