The Senate has included $1.5 million for St. Pete’s Florida Holocaust Museum in its supplemental funding initiatives, better known to insiders as the “sprinkle list.”
The funding is for security and education enhancements to benefit students, educators and scholars.
The Legislature provided $5 million in the 2022 Legislative Session. While the $1.5 million is a win, an appropriations request shows the museum sought $7.5 million.
That request, sponsored by Rep. Linda Chaney, was for funding to cover “facility improvements, remediation and related costs to expand, preserve and secure the museum’s environment, and resources for students, teachers, scholars, descendants and visitors.”
