Graham on Everglades Restoration

“We are going to have a challenging time in terms of getting adequate resources for the Everglades, and we are going to have a collective responsibility to develop a strategy to get those new leaders educated about the Everglades,” Graham said.

Graham said Florida’s primary economic issue was saving the Everglades, which supplies water for a large percentage of the state’s residents and provides hundreds of jobs through some restoration projects already in place.

Funding from the federal government is key, he said, cautioning environmentalists to correct anyone who labels Everglades funding as an earmark.
