Florida Gov. DeSantis Turning Down Federal Funds for Political Gain

Follow this link to the Orlando Sentinel article which outlines how DeSantis is turning down federal funds for things like healthcare and climate change because the programs are tied to President Biden. https://www.orlandosentinel.com/2024/01/05/desantis-led-florida-has-rejected-11-billion-in-federal-funding-in-recent-years/?share=lnhshoet2fteaafresle


I was part of a group that sent out over 14,000 emails and tweets to Florida municipal officials letting them know that DeSantis was turning down funds which would help their districts and Florida citizens save money on energy efficient appliances and upgrades. It looks like DeSantis may be having a partial change of heart with respect to the funding from the Inflation Reduction Act which would supply rebates to Florida citizens to help them implement climate friendly upgrades to their homes, apartments and vehicles.
