Tallahassee Days - March 18th & 19th, 2019
What is Tallahassee Days?
Each year, FMCA members go to Tallahassee to meet with state legislators (or their aides) to encourage them to continue to support funding for mosquito control in Florida. Over the past several years, this has been a request totaling $2.66 million dollars, which includes $1.66M to support individual programs, $500K for a competitive research grant program and $500K to support three positions at the Florida Medical Entomology Laboratory who are working on subjects relevant to mosquito control.
Why should you attend?
Does your program receive state funding or benefit from the research projects funded each year? If so, we need your voice in Tallahassee to share with your legislators the strong need for their continued support, to ensure your program continues to receive state funding to support your efforts and protect public health!
