Florida's top emergency management official is stepping down to take a job in the private sector.

Protests heated up outside the Statehouse in Tallahassee Friday over allegations that state employees can’t use the terms “climate change” and “global warming.” 

The claims resurfaced yesterday after Florida Division of Emergency Management head Bryan Koon avoided using either term in his response before a Senate panel about federal dollars to combat climate change.

Governor Scott denied the allegations at a press conference today in Orlando.
