Gov. Rick Scott and Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam will be in Washington, D.C. Wednesday to meet with members of Florida’s congressional delegation to discuss federal assistance after Hurricane Irma.

A focus of the meeting will be the state’s citrus industry, which accounted for more than $760 million of the storm’s estimated $2.5 billion impact on Florida’s agricultural industry.

U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan, a Republican who is co-chairman of the delegation, said a meeting will take place at 10 a.m. in the Rayburn House Office Building.
