Florida Gov. Rick Scott Supports Lake Okeechobee Reservoir

Tallahassee, FL  --  Governor Rick Scott is voicing support for a plan to build a reservoir south of Lake Okeechobee in an effort to stem coastal algae blooms.  Scott voiced support for the plan yesterday during a press conference in Tallahassee, where he urged state lawmakers to earmark 200-million dollars toward repairs to the lake's 84-year-old dike.  The reservoir proposal is sponsored by Senate President Joe Negron of the Treasure Coast.  Scott affirmed a reservoir plan, that quote, "utilizes state-owned land and does not take people's private land."  

The current legislative session ends May 5th.
