Did this money come from the COVID recovery money the US gave Florida?
$22 million for Port Canaveral....
Miami,
Jax
Key west
Palm beach
doesn't sound like its aimed at the cruise industry...
More like spending money on infrastructure for when the Panama Canal upgrades start opening up

The $250 million is from the America Rescue Plan and the Coronavirus State Fiscal Recovery Fund.

I'm not saying if this is good or bad as I don't know. Obviously it is good for Port workers and cruise lines as they use ports. However, what I will point out is the GOP voted against the American Recovery act and generally do not like government bail outs. At least that is what I read on this forum. Thus the continued hypocrisy in my opinion.

For reference:
"The American Rescue Plan, also known as the Joe Biden Stimulus and the COVID-19 Relief bill, passed the House and Senate and will be signed into law by President Joe Biden."
"The bill passed both the House and Senate with only Democratic votes. No Republicans voted for it."

Port Canaveral got 72+ million. From today's recently posted article:

"Murray said Port Canaveral will use its share of the American Rescue Plan Act money to replenish its capital construction funds, so it can undertake various cruise and cargo terminal projects, starting with work on North Cargo Berth 3."

Seems like a cruise ship bail out to me. But, what do I know?!?

Wonder how much will be spent on lawsuits from unvaccinated dopes who desantis is forcing cruise lines to accept. And then got infected?
Telling businesses what to do, the party of more gov't control.
Listen to dumbass political hacks, not scientists....im sure it will go well

Let it be known, both Rick Scott and Marco Rubio voted against this. Marco is more worried about Cuba and Rick Scott...uh...don't know what he is doing..

They supported companies being forced to kowtow to chumpfsantis insanity vs guidance from scientists and epidemiologists.
