AgricultureFlorida's family farmers, growers and ranchers are essential workers providing a safe food supply for our citizens and millions of people around the world. Our policies must ensure open and fair markets to sustain and grow our domestic farm production. Agriculture regulations must also strike a balance between profitable farm production and sound environmental policy. I am committed to giving our agricultural communities all the tools they need to succeed.
Military and DefenseOur unequalled national defense is a beacon of freedom and liberty that is revered around the world. I am honored to bring my military experience to Congress as we draft and debate crucial legislation to set sound defense policy and provide our service members with the resources they need. Peace, prosperity and democracy at home and abroad are made possible by our continued investment in our national defense.
Economy and SpendingFlorida's farmers, small business owners and families should enjoy opportunity and a high-quality life. Prosperity is made possible when the government is fiscally responsible by eliminating wasteful government redundancy and reducing spending. As your Representative and Member of Congress, it's our job to provide the fiscal oversight and policies needed for a prosperous future.
COVID-19The global COVID-19 pandemic has created unprecedented and unique challenges for all Floridians. Our team is committed to supporting legislation that helps Florida business owners, employees, farmers, veterans, and families rebound economically.
HealthcareHigh quality healthcare should be affordable, accessible and provide Americans with a choice of doctors and plans. We'll continue our work to limit government's role in healthcare. We'll also work to keep drug prices low and expand options for all Floridians, including those enrolled in Medicare. With over 3.5 million Floridians enrolled in some form of Medicare prescription drug coverage, it is my mission to fight the harmful effects of the Affordable Care Act and to reform prescription drug standards.
VeteransAs a military service veteran, I know firsthand the unmet needs of our nation's heroes. VA reform, while long overdue, is beginning to take shape. New VA policy for accountabilty needs to be followed by new options for education to ensure economic opportunity and greater healthcare choices for veterans.
TechnologyIn the era of Big Tech, new oversight and accountability mechanisms are necessary to protect American consumers and our fundamental First Amendment rights. We are prepared to fight Big Tech's abuse of the Section 230 provision of the Communications Decency Act. It's time to hold technology companies accountable for selectively censoring conservative content and to ensure that all Americans have a platform for their voice and free exchange of ideas.
JudiciaryIt's an honor to serve on the House Judiciary Committee in Congress, where we draft and debate legislation related to the administration of justice in federal courts, administrative bodies, and law enforcement agencies. Through this position, I am able to take an active role in reforming our immigration system, protecting our Second Amendment, holding Big Tech accountable, and promoting integrity within the federal government.
Environment and Water QualityFlorida's continued economic prosperity and quality of life depends on water quality. Our springs, rivers, lakes and tidal waters at our beaches must be clean. Our amazing natural resources of the Everglades and Lake Okeechobee must be protected. Water quality and environmental protection are our top policy priorities. We can never lose sight of the fact that clean Florida water is at the core of our food supply, economic activity, and recreation. We'll continue our strong efforts to protect Florida's natural resources.
It is our belief, without reservation, that the Second Amendment is an unquestionable Constitutional right. Whether you are a lifelong sportsman as I am, or any citizen intent on protecting life, home, and family, we'll faithfully defend your Second Amendment right.
