On Monday, members of Florida’s House and Senate recommended that $50 million be included in that state’s Innovation Incentive Program as part of a three-year commitment of $130 million, Jackson Lab said in a news release. The recommendation will become final if the full Florida Legislature approves it and it is signed by Gov. Charlie Crist, according to lab officials.

If Florida approves the funding measure, Collier County is expected to contribute another $130 million to the project and Jackson Lab would contribute $120 million, for a total of $380 million.
