Ag Commissioner Nikki Fried says Florida bears brunt of Fed Shutdown

Nikki Fried appeared on CNN to deliver this message:

“The shutdown is over for now, but it’s put Florida at unnecessary risk — from food safety and inspections, to federal loans and assistance for farmers.

Our state has stepped up. We’ve got our fellow Floridians’ backs. Our inspectors are out there. The safety of Florida-grown food is our top priority.

But the President needs to stop playing chicken, and start protecting our people here at home.”
