Florida Senate president commits to Triumph funds coming to NWFL

March 7, 2017

State Sen. Doug Broxson passed along to the Inweekly encouraging news from Senate President Joe Negron’s first press conference of the 2017 Legislative Session.

Sen. Negron believes that 75-percent of the BP settlement funds should come to Northwest Florida. The funds are a part of a settlement, not state funds, according to the senate president. The dollars should be passed on unimpeded to the counties in the Panhandle impacted by the 2010 BP oil spill. Sen. Negron is committed to making it happen.

“President Negron’s comments could not have been stronger,” Sen. Broxson said in phone conversation this afternoon.
