DeSatan strikes again: Florida the only state to turn down millions to lessen emissions

The state transportation department left $320 million on the table, saying it wouldn’t support the “continued politicization of our roadways.”

Congress in 2021 provided $6.4 billion to states to curb tailpipe emissions and reduce the effects of climate change.

Florida was set to receive $320 million, the third most of any state.

The state Department of Transportation began drafting a plan to add trucker parking at rest stops, which staff said could fix the statewide shortage that kept drivers on the road longer, polluting more, as they searched for a place to stop.
