WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Rick Scott applauded the Environmental Protection Agency’s announcement granting the State of Florida permitting authority under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act. This designation eliminates duplicity in permitting and helps protect Florida’s environment by allowing Florida to follow the state’s permitting program standards, which are just as stringent, if not more so, than what is currently in place on the federal level.
