DEP Attempts to Reduce the Impacts of the D.C. Shutdown on Florida Families

In an effort to protect Florida’s families and the environment from further negative repercussions from the federal government shutdown, Secretary Herschel T. Vinyard Jr. sent a letter today informing the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, that in accordance with the coordination agreement, the Department will continue to process permit applications.

The valid joint coordination agreement has been in place since the ’90s and allows the Department to issue state and federal authorizations for some minor activities that have minimal environmental impacts.
