Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced a one-time $ 1,000 reward for first responders, including firefighters and law enforcement, saying at a press conference in Satellite Beach on Wednesday, "We fund the police and more."

“Some want to defund the police,” DeSantis said at the presser in front of the Satellite Beach Police Department.” We’re funding the police and then some, and that’s what we’re here today to say,” the governor added, drawing nods of approval and applause from first responders and members of law enforcement standing alongside DeSantis at the event.
