Water Projects Comments:

Florida TaxWatch is recommending a veto of all the Water Projects in line item 1683A due to a lack of a proper review and selection process. Section 403.885, Florida Statutes, provides for the Water Projects Grants Program, under which the Department of Environmental Protection is required to administer the grant program and evaluate the proposals. The department did not review proposals for any of these projects and did not participate in their selection. Water projects have been popular area for member projects over the years and if the legislature chooses to fund these local projects, then a thorough review process should be undertaken. The statutory criteria for funding water projects have been weakened over the years, but even the current statutory review process, however insufficient in may be, was not followed. DEP also has other grant and loan programs through which local water projects can apply for funding and for which some of these projects may have qualified to apply. For all these economic development items, Florida TaxWatch is not recommending a straight veto, but recommends that the Governor, along with the Department of Economic Opportunity and Enterprise Florida, make an assessment of each project. The assessment should determine if the projects are consistent with the goals of DEO and the state economic development program, that there is a reasonable assurance that they will provide new jobs and a positive return on investment, and that there are accountability and performance measures in place to safeguard the taxpayers' investment. If any of these projects do not meet those standards, the Governor should veto them.
