Yesterday Governor Ron DeSantis received the Florida Chamber of Commerce-backed infrastructure bill, SB 7068. The clock is now ticking, and the Governor needs to hear from you.
With 4.5 million more people expected to call Florida home by 2030, the legislature took steps in the right direction to prepare Florida for future needs. Mirrored after the Florida Chamber’s Infrastructure Coalition recommendations, this bill passed with overwhelming bipartisan support.
ICYMI: Read what Florida Chamber President and CEO Mark Wilson wrote in the Ocala Star Banner about why Governor Ron DeSantis should sign this bipartisan bill.
Despite the bipartisan support, there are still some that will always oppose smart growth and opportunities, believing that a thriving economy cannot coexist with responsible environmentalism or that our roadways are already adequate for the future. Indeed, there are environmental groups fighting against this smart growth bill, publicly targeting the Florida Chamber for smartly preparing for Florida’s future growth just as they are heavily lobbying Governor DeSantis to veto this bill.
