In an exclusive interview with 850WFTL’s morning show, Lt. Governor Jeanette Nuñez accused the Biden Administration of playing politics with billions of dollars in infrastructure money and short-changing Florida.
Case in point, the Biden Administration announced yesterday that the US Army Corps of Engineers will spend $1.1 billion dollars on Everglades restoration.

But as Congressman Brian Mast pointed out, none of the money is being spent on building a reservoir to the south of Lake Okechobee to handle runoff and mitigate toxic algae blooms. Mast said. “Today they announced they wouldn’t allocate even one dollar for the reservoir, cementing the Biden Administration’s massive screw up.
