CLA Award Presented to Florida Senator
Walton Simpson

Mary Hartney (Florida Fertilizer and Agrichemical Association president) and Bucky Kennedy (Southern Crop Production Association government affairs director) joined CLA’s Jeff Case in Tallahassee, Florida, to present CLA’s State Legislator of the Year Award to Senator Walton Simpson. Senator Simpson has been a strong advocate for sound agriculture policy for many years in the Florida legislature. He was instrumental in turning back the supplementary pesticide registration fee in Florida that was implemented several years ago to address budget shortfalls. Many thanks to Mary and Bucky for their efforts in working with Senator Simpson and his colleagues to turn back this onerous fee.
