South Florida is getting a nice juicy cut of Washington's favorite dish -- pork! Specifically, $183 million in funding for Everglades restoration. It's part of a $410 billion spending bill that will also loosen travel restrictions to Cuba
and pay for expansion of the Museum of Discovery and Science
in Fort Lauderdale.
Reps. Ron Klein and Debbie Wasserman Schultz are having a news conference today at noon at the Anne Kolb Nature Center
in Hollywood to announce the Everglades funding.
