Although the House cleared federal relief funding on Thursday, the Senate will delay their decision until the new year. The $81 billion disaster-relief package includes money for Florida citrus growers impacted by Hurricane Irma. Mike Sparks, CEO of Florida Citrus Mutual, says although he is happy with the House passing the relief package, the delay in the Senate is disappointing.
