Rick Scott’s Proposed Environmental Budget is Nothing but a Cover-up

Rick Scott’s Proposed Environmental Budget is Nothing but a Cover-up
In response to Governor Scott’s announcement on  Florida’s environmental budget , Florida Democratic Party spokesperson Johanna Cervone issued the following statement: 
 
“Governor Scott may have talked a big game at today’s press conference about protecting the environment, but his self-serving record tells a different story. Not only has Scott repeatedly denied the existence of climate change, but he’s done everything in his power to hamper the state’s ability to deal with these issues in order to appease his crony friends. Scott knows his long record of denying the catastrophic impact of climate change is out of step with Floridians – it’s why, at the last minute, he’s trying to change the record. It’s further proof that Scott is only ever looking out for himself.”
