TALLAHASSEE — Florida Commissioner of Agriculture Adam H. Putnam today issued the following statement regarding the Office of Management and Budget’s hurricane relief budget request of $44 billion:
“Irma devastated Florida agriculture, yet the OMB request puts government reimbursement in front of real taxpayers and completely leaves out the citrus industry. I am confident our delegation will modify this relief package into something meaningful for Florida farmers and ranchers.”
—Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services
