And we’re going to add five million more drivers, and so when we look at infrastructure, when we look at water, when we look at the environment. when we look at energy, the bottom line is that we need twenty percent more water by the year 2030, and the focus of the Florida Chamber is to work with the legislature to cocoa on what the science says we should do” wilson told reporters.
