"Zika: Lois Frankel urges House to approve more money to fight ‘looming health threat’ "

Below is recent news at the Post On Politics blog about a news conference by U.S. Rep. Lois Frankel who was joined by Palm Beach County mosquito control supervisor Gary Goode and Michael Farzan of The Scripps Research Institute:

     U.S. Rep. Lois Frankel, D-West Palm Beach, today [June 6th] urged the Republican-controlled House to approve more money to combat the mosquito-borne Zika virus and urged citizens to do their part to control mosquitoes.
     “It is a looming health threat,” said Frankel, conducting a news conference in a friend’s lush back yard. “Our delegation here in Florida, both senators as well as the president of the United States, have recognized it and there’s going to be a push again next week when we go back to Congress to get more funding.”
