Scott, speaking before Monday’s Martin County Chamber of Commerce breakfast meeting at Martin Downs Golf Club in Palm City,  and the Loxahatchee River Environmental Center in Jupiter, pledged to spend $1 billion on restoring the Everglades, cleaning up the polluted Indian River Lagoon, saving the state’s declining springs and providing more water for the state’s continued growth.
