Florida Commissioner of Agriculture Adam H. Putnam issued the following statement today thanking Governor Rick Scott for supporting the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services’ priorities in the state budget:
“I thank Governor Scott for continuing to cut taxes for Florida’s families and businesses and for supporting our budget priorities, including increasing pay for our first responders. The department’s first responders are the best of the best and keep Floridians and visitors safe when lives and property are on the line. They’ve earned this.
“With the Governor’s support, this budget also helps our department protect Florida from wildfire, promote Florida’s agricultural products, support our citrus industry, preserve our natural resources, and much more.”
