From the Office of Congressman Neal Dunn April 2024

16

Congressman Neal DunnSpring is a time of new beginnings and growth, and I’m excited about the new and exciting things happening in Florida’s Second Congressional District. In early March, the House passed a consolidated appropriation bill that included $15 million for new community projects. This was a huge win for our district!

This package also included full funding for veterans’ healthcare, quality of housing upgrades, and funding for child development centers. Additionally, the package continues critical investments in agriculture research, infrastructure, and water supply improvement while also cutting $977 million from the Department of Justice and preventing the agency from abusing their power.

I fought to include funding for several projects in Florida’s Second Congressional District. These projects included:

$550,000 for the Choctawhatchee Bay and River Basin Aquatic Ecosystem Restoration study that will restore the natural hydrology, geomorphic conditions, and native plant species.

$1.1 million for Phase 2 of the Runway-27 Expansion in DeFuniak Springs. This project will safely provide space for aircraft taxiing and parking and will meet growing demands for point-to-point air mobility.

$5 million for improvements to Panama City Beach’s water supplies and increased resiliency in emergencies.

$287,000 for Campbellton’s Essential Fire Services Equipment. The funding will support the purchase of new fire equipment that will result in better response times and more efficient service.

$1.5 million for NextStep at Endeavor Forward, Inc., a program in Marianna that helps prepare adults on the autism spectrum with employment and life skills for life beyond secondary school.

Thank you all for allowing me the privilege of serving Florida’s Second Congressional District. I will continue to fight for you and our wonderful State of Florida. God bless you all!
