Florida Delegation Wants Commerce Department to Quickly Distribute Stimulus Funds for Fishing Industry
As part of the stimulus package, $300 million was included to help fisheries and Florida’s two senators--Republican U.S. Sens. Marco Rubio and Rick Scott--and 25 of the state’s 27 members of the U.S. House sent a letter to U.S. Commerce Sec. Wilbur Ross on the matter on Wednesday.
The governor also showcased the economic benefits Florida gains through fishing.
