While speaking at the Tropical Storm Elsa at the state Emergency Operations Center in Tallahassee, Florida, Gov. Ron DeSantis said that condominiums in Florida are “kind of a dime a dozen, particularly in southern Florida,” and refused to take any immediate action to address concerns about the aging buildings, reports the Miami Herald.
DeSantis said the 136-unit high-rise Champlain Towers South “had problems from the start,” but failed to mention specifics.
DeSantis refused to say if he wants aging buildings to be recertified to assure residents of their structural integrity.
