Florida’s Senate Agriculture Committee will hold a meeting Thursday morning in Tallahassee to discuss agricultural damage from Hurricane Irma. Irma tore through the heart of Florida agriculture, leaving many growers to deal with devastation on their farms. Due to the immense amount of damage caused by Irma, it is expected to play a key role in the 2018 legislative session.
This committee meeting will be one of many this week as the Florida Legislature prepares for the 2018 legislative session, which will begin in January. AgNet Media’s Abbey Taylor will be in Tallahassee on Thursday to cover the meeting, so stay tuned for more later this week.
