The federal budget signed last week means that Democrat Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Weston can say she’s bringing $14 million worth of community projects to her home district.
Florida’s 23rd Congressional District is getting $6 million for its higher education institutions, Nova Southeastern University, Florida International University and Broward College. The cities of Sunrise, Dania Beach and Davie are getting $5.27 million toward waterworks and flood control. Dania Beach is getting $3 million to rebuild facilities at its C.W. Thomas Park Redevelopment. And $500,000 is going toward reaching out to girls who need teletherapy through Broward’s PACE program.
