WASHINGTON, D.C. ­­–– Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25) issued the following statement after President Trump included $250 million for Everglades Restoration projects in his proposed budget to Congress.

“As my colleagues from the Everglades Caucus and I stated in our recent letter to President Trump, the Everglades is a national treasure. One of the true ecological wonders of the world and is fundamental to Florida’s economy. Over the course of my career in public service, I’ve successfully fought for and obtained more than a billion dollars for Everglades restoration funding to ensure we can continue to reap the benefits of this unique ecosystem for generations to come. This funding will lead to the completion of critical Everglades Restoration projects and shows this Administration’s continued commitment to Florida.  I thank POTUS for including the requested $250 million in his proposed budget, and I look forward to advancing this in the House.”
