On Thursday, Gov. Ron DeSantis got to work on the environment, fulfilling his promise to make water quality a central issue in his administration.

DeSantis appeared in areas hit hard by outbreaks of toxic algae and red tide, signing an executive order to expand state efforts to improve Florida’s troubled waters.

DeSantis drew sharp criticism from Democrats during the campaign when he argued that climate change wasn't an area for state officials to get involved in.
