In the event of another case of pollution like the Mosaic sinkhole or sewage spilling into a bay, the governor says to expect a different response.
Rick Scott has announced that within 24 hours of a potential case of pollution, the public must know about it.
Scott calls the move common sense and something people deserve.
He says current laws about notifications need changing immediately.
Scott’s emergency directive lasts three months, and he says he intends to work with lawmakers to make any new rules permanent.
