FDP Chair Terrie Rizzo on Ron DeSantis’s Decision to Allow Oil Drilling in the Everglades

FDP Chair Terrie Rizzo

Florida Democratic Party Chair Terrie Rizzo released the following statement on the DeSantis administration’s decision not to appeal a court ruling allowing the expansion of oil drilling in the Everglades:

“Ron DeSantis today endangered the drinking water of millions of Floridians by allowing oil drilling in the Everglades. From this day forward, DeSantis will now be known as the governor who allowed the expansion of oil drilling in the Everglades. DeSantis has destroyed any credibility he has on environmental issues and made clear he is more comfortable siding with fossil fuel interests than protecting our air and water. DeSantis today has violated every Floridians’ right to clean water.”
