[Hooray for the SunSentinel! One of the few Florida media outlets that got the dollar amount right on the new Everglades restoration plan. But then the editorial fails to note that the $1.5 billion figure is also EXACTLY what EPA had been looking to extract from the state from the start. Just wait until teh rest of the truth starts to come out about the real costs! ]
Give Gov. Rick Scott credit. His administration has succeeded in moving what has been an agonizingly slow initiative to restore the Florida Everglades. The federal Environmental Protection Agency recently approved the governor's $1.5 billion proposal to clean up the region's polluted water, a necessity if Everglades restoration is to become a reality.
