311.22 Additional authorization for funding certain dredging projects.
(1) The Florida Seaport Transportation and Economic Development Council shall establish a program to fund dredging projects in counties having a population of fewer than 300,000 according to the last official census. Funds made available under this program may be used to fund approved projects for the dredging or deepening of channels, turning basins, or harbors on a 25-percent local matching basis with any port authority, as such term is defined in s. 315.02(2), which complies with the permitting requirements in part IV of chapter 373 and the local financial management and reporting provisions of part III of chapter 218.
(2) The council shall adopt rules for evaluating the projects that may be funded pursuant to this section. The rules must provide criteria for evaluating the economic benefit of the project. The rules must include the creation of an administrative review process by the council which is similar to the process described in s. 311.09(5)-(11), and provide for a review by the Department of Transportation and the Department of Economic Opportunity of all projects submitted for funding under this section. 42, 55, ch. 2005-71; s. 1, ch. 2005-261; s. 1, ch. 2005-281; s. 39, ch. 2006-26; ss. 34, 53, 54, ch. 2007-73; s. 16, ch. 2007-196; s. 8, ch. 2008-5; ss. 232, 493, ch. 2011-142; s. 8, ch. 2012-128; s. 84, ch. 2012-174.
