Rubio, Scott, and Members of the Florida Delegation Urge USDA to Relieve Florida Farmers Affected by Hurricane Ian

Oct 19, 2022 | Press Releases

U.S. Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Rick Scott (R-FL) led members of the Florida congressional delegation in sending a letter to U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Secretary Tom Vilsack requesting that USDA expedite all available resources to ensure Florida’s farmers and ranchers can recover from the impacts of Hurricane Ian. 
 

U.S. Representatives Kat Cammack (R-FL), Greg Steube (R-FL), María Elvira Salazar (R-FL), Carlos Giménez (R-FL), and Vern Buchanan (R-FL) also signed the letter.

 

  • “As you know, Florida farmers and ranchers provide the U.S. with high quality products during critical winter months, and the timing of Hurricane Ian’s devastating impacts will have serious consequences for Florida’s specialty crop industry. The USDA has long been committed to the mission of ‘do right and feed everyone.’ There is a clear opportunity and responsibility to ‘do right’ by Florida farmers and ranchers, and send all available resources to expedite Hurricane Ian disaster recovery.”

 
Last week… Rubio led bipartisan members of the Florida delegation in a letter to USDA supporting a disaster declaration for Florida counties affected by Hurricane Ian to assist growers whose crops were damaged or destroyed.
