Senate President Wilton Simpson discussed this year’s past Legislative Session, as well as the threat population growth poses to Florida, at a Tiger Bay Club meeting Friday.
When discussing this past Session, he mentioned the budget struggles brought on by the pandemic. He also highlighted the work done to address Everglades restoration, sea level-rise and upping state employees’ pay.
The Pasco County Republican said population growth will be the biggest challenge for the state in the coming years.
Simpson said that policymakers will need to figure out how to respond to that growth, addressing issues like transportation and water supply.
