According to a statement Friday from the governor’s office, the money will go to mosquito control, enhanced laboratory capacity and Zika kits from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Scott used his emergency powers in June to authorize $26.2 million for Zika response. He met with top Republicans this week on Zika funding from Washington, but he said Friday that Florida “cannot wait on federal action any longer.”
