The long-awaited stimulus package approved by Congress Monday night includes $250 million for Everglades restoration. 

The state’s top Republican leaders — including Gov. Ron DeSantis and Sens. Marco Rubio and Rick Scott — had urged President Donald Trump for the spending. 

DeSantis has made Everglades restoration a central issue of his administration, after toxic algae gripped the state in 2018. 

Trump is expected to sign the measure in the coming days.
