STUART, Fla. - Florida Sen. President Joe Negron announced a major change Tuesday to a plan aiming to keep toxic blue green algae from making another appearance on the Treasure Coast.
Negron announced a scaled-back version of SB10, which was originally filed as a proposal to buy at least 60,000 acres of farm land south of Lake Okeechobee for water storage and treatment.
A proposed amendment to SB 10 would drop the land usage to 14,000 acres, by creating a deeper reservoir.
