Justification
Governor's Recommendations 2022-23
The Governor's Budget Recommendation for Fiscal Year 2022-2023 includes spending authority for the sixth year of funds received from the Volkswagen emissions settlement. These funds may be used to replace or convert older diesel engines and other infrastructure with lower emission technology, which may include newer diesel, natural gas and other alternative energy options. Diesel emission reduction projects began in the spring of 2019. These funds were awarded to Florida for damages caused by Volkswagen's violations of air quality standards. Florida's total share is more than $166 million.
