Gov. DeSantis touts Florida, water quality in Fort Pierce at budget signing

Gov. Ron DeSantis came to the Pelican Yacht Club on Thursday to sign the state budget − which included $100 million for the Indian River Lagoon − and talk about his presidential campaign, on the edge of the waterway. 

“We're happy that there are steps being taken for environmental protection and for water quality, especially for the Indian River Lagoon, but it doesn't go far enough," said Casey Darling Kniffin, advocacy coordinator at the Florida Oceanographic Society.
