announced today the recipients of grants totaling $100,000 to implement drug-free workplace programs around the state. Ten chambers of commerce were selected as recipients of $10,000 grants to implement a program in their respective community. The grant recipients are:

 Tropicana's drug-free workplace program has been recognized as a national model program. In fact, President Bush visited Tropicana in December to commend the company on its efforts.
 This is the second year that Tropicana has designated grant funds to allow chambers throughout the state to initiate local programs in their communities. In total, the company has granted more than $300,000 for community anti-drug efforts. The implementation of drug-free programs is being coordinated on a statewide basis by the Florida Chamber of Commerce.
 Martin Gutfreund, Tropicana vice president, government affairs, stated, "We are strongly committed to encouraging drug-free workplace programs and are proud to assist 10 new communities with their anti-drug efforts in 1992."
 Dr. Michael Walsh, executive director, President's Drug Advisory Council, stated, "Some of the most innovative and most aggressive leadership has come from right here at Tropicana in Manatee County in South Florida. I think they've shown the way in which to make the program work and have provided a wonderful example for the rest of the country to follow."
 Last year's recipients of Tropicana's drug-free workplace grants consisted of Greater Clearwater Chamber of Commerce, Flagler County Chamber of Commerce, Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce, Jackson County Chamber of Commerce, Coalition for a Drug-Free Lee County, The Greater South Brevard Area Chamber of Commerce, Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce and Winter Haven Area Chamber of Commerce.
 Tropicana was instrumental in assisting the Manatee Chamber of Commerce with the implementation of a county-wide business/drug abuse program in 1989. The program currently has 446 business members within the county.
