St. Lucie River aid not coming

We can all understand the need for tax cuts at some time, right? It's just too bad that our environment has to suffer from it. This article in the Palm Beach Post says the latest state tax cuts mean the planned cleanup of the St. Lucie River isn't going to happen. The South Florida Water Management District is putting off a reservoir that would "catch" runoff (polluted water -- possibly from Lake Okeechobee?). The article also says the river was supposed to be part of a $1.2 billion plan to restore the Indian River Lagoon that Congress has been neglecting since 2002.
