“Governor Scott today issued a statement regarding an emergency rule that will change public notification following pollution incidents. While we have yet to review the details of this rule, we are committed to working with Governor Scott, and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP). The Governor also stated that his office will be proposing similar legislation. We look forward to working with his office, DEP and the Florida Legislature. We will also work with other stakeholders on an improved and transparent approach.
“Our company is continuing its remediation efforts on site. On Tuesday, we will brief Governor Scott and DEP Secretary Jon Steverson and provide them with an update during an on-site visit.”
