Gov. DeSantis Vetoes Bad Growth Management Bill

On June 30, Governor Ron DeSantis vetoed SB 410 – a bill that would have harmed local communities’ ability to address their own growth and development. FCV would like to thank the Governor for taking this action, and thank groups like 1000 Friends of Florida for leading the fight for smart growth. 

Conservation Voters, advocates, and Floridians across the state spoke up against irresponsible growth. In defense of our priceless natural resources – including our air, land, and water – conservation groups joined together to fight the passage of SB 410. The Governor’s veto highlights the power of the public’s voice and the duty that all elected officials have to meet voters’ demands. Thank you to Governor DeSantis, our environmental allies like 1000 Friends of Florida, and the thousands of passionate Floridians who made their voice heard on this important issue.

    That’s great. My entire family went from hard core Republicans (my grandmother county chair under Ike) to independent. The GOP has become toxic to all but Wall Street, but sometimes DeSantis shows flashes of the old moderates we knew and even Teddy Roosevelt.
