In Orlando Today, Rubio Continues Push For Zika Virus Funding
Washington, D.C. – During a media availability with Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs in Orlando earlier today, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) discussed the importance of Congress acting this week to confront the Zika virus, including his and U.S. Senator Bill Nelson’s legislation to provide the administration’s full $1.9 billion request. The U.S. Senate is scheduled to vote on the Nelson-Rubio amendment tomorrow, as well as two other Zika-related measures.

Senator Marco Rubio: “On the Zika issue, I hope we’ll have good news before the end of this week. The Senate is scheduled to vote on numerous amendments to provide funding to deal with Zika.
“One of the amendments is sponsored by myself and Senator Nelson for the full $1.9 billion. There [are] two other amendments that fund it a little less. Obviously, I prefer the $1.9 billion. I hope we’ll do something.
“We’re getting into the summer months, which [are] the months where you’ll see the mosquito season really kick off.
“We also happen to be Florida, a place where people travel from all over the world. Particularly here in Central Florida, they’ll come from Brazil after the Olympics, they’ll come from everywhere.
“And not to mention that Puerto Rico is now facing a severe outbreak of Zika, and that too… You know the links between Central Florida and Puerto Rico. So these issues need to be dealt with.
“And also there’s no silver bullet. There’s a multifaceted approach to both of these and so it’s great to have talked to the mayor about some of these things to ensure as I go back to Washington today that we’re doing all we can on both of them.”
