Keith Williams, an associate in the Firm’s Regulatory, Compliance and Government Practice, is quoted in this Law360 article. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis issued a new executive order focused on addressing the numerous water and environmental issues confronting the state.

According to Keith, the order demonstrates DeSantis’ commitment to cleaning Florida’s water but neglects projects in the northern area of the state.

"Projects north of Lake Okeechobee also need to be a focus of the new administration for reducing the total nutrients that flow into the lake so discharges either east, west or south will be cleaner," said Keith.
