On June 8, 2022, Governor DeSantis vetoed Senate Bill 2508
This is a major victory for our environment and clean water advocates everywhere.
If it had been allowed to pass, SB2508 would have sent more harmful Lake O discharges to the St. Lucie Estuary, kept vital water from reaching the Everglades, and allowed toxic algal blooms to persist in our waterways.
By vetoing this BAD BILL, the Governor has shown that he cares about our environment and its people—thank you, Governor!
Your support, along with thousands of other voices across the state, helped stop this piece of legislation from being passed. You spoke out and the Governor listened. Your passionate outpouring of support proves that when we work together for something we all believe in, we can create real change.
Thank you for supporting Florida Oceanographic and for being stewards of our environment!
