Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ administration disregarded a letter written by the Environmental Protection Agency instructing states to adopt new rules related to carbon emissions. “The EPA relies on a ‘hydrogen economy’ that does not currently exist to expedite the ‘transition’ of the nation’s power grid through unfounded technologies,” said Florida Department of Environmental Protection Secretary Shawn Hamilton. “By prioritizing the use of unfounded technologies to force a reduction in readily available generation assets, the Agency places the reliability, affordability, and capacity of the nation’s energy supply at risk.”

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, after naming James Uthmeier presidential campaign manager, has also named Commerce secretary Alex Kelly as Acting Chief of Staff.

  1. I wonder if weedy or moderate posters in here ever get tired of repeating themselves? we sure are. when do you stop and realize that the majority of regular Tallahassee folks don’t agree or don’t care enough about your view? So simple – Porter at best doesn’t understand. At worst is manipulating. talking about the state attorney. the chamber. political parties. the mayor. rinse. wash. repeat. put some more pads on the walls at Apalachee.

  2. If Chief Revell didn’t say it then I WILL…….“Law Enforcement cannot prevent Gun Violence.” You can’t prevent what you do NOT KNOW is about to happen. A Friend was in a Car Crash yesterday, she was hit from behind in stopped Traffic, could she have prevented it from happening? NO. Can you lower the Numbers on Gun Violence? YES, but to do so, you would be called a Racist. It would involve Stop & Search and Stop & Frisk in the High Crime areas. It would involve Judges handing down longer Sentences to keep them in Jail LONGER. It would involve the Proper Charges being Filed by the D.A.’s Office. It would involve using the 10-20-Life Law again.

  3. Chief Revell should spend his time doing his job as he made a huge mistake at the Greater Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce Junket aligning himself with the state attorney Jack Campbell buffoon. As a result they both were sanctioned by their own political party. You don’t use taxpayers funds to attend the junket to publicly disparage a legitimate hardworking business owner. That is misuse of their offices.

    Chief Revell should Step Up and call out the corruption in City Hall which actually puts him in a tough position as they are also his boss. So far he goes along with it and says nothing. And we wonder why the crime rate spirals upward on a DAILEY basis
