July 26, 2021 Press Release
Our farmers, ranchers, and producers typically face economic challenges from many things like commodity prices, weather, spikes in production costs, and crop diseases. Congress should take positive action to protect our domestic agricultural businesses instead of creating new burdens, like unfair tax policy of discriminatory debt relief measures.”

“The unified voice of the Administration must be clear: the current protests are the result of sixty-two years of oppression and not the result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The situation is dire, and the Cuban people deserve our support in their struggle for freedom. It would be a severe mistake to lift sanctions on the Cuban regime which would only give the brutal dictatorship more resources to use in its crackdown against protestors. Do not let a springtime of the Cuban people turn into a winter of oppression.”

“More than 7 million Floridians and thousands of businesses tied to tourism, agriculture, healthcare and construction depend on water supply from Lake Okeechobee, and expected that LOSOM would result in a plan that meets the water supply purpose by restoring the water supply purpose by restoring the water supply performance that existed prior to the current schedule. In addition to seeking assurances from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers that the Preliminary Preferred Plan CC can be optimized to meet the lake’s project purposes, we are also concerned that without such changes, Plan CC will result in significantly higher volumes of harmful Lake Okeechobee discharges to the Caloosahatchee River.”

"As a former Airborne Infantry Officer and a JAG Corps Officer, I witnessed firsthand the negative consequences of mandating vaccines in our military with the Anthrax Vaccine Immunization Program. Forced COVID-19 vaccinations would threaten our military readiness and would even cause military members to exit service, all while taking away rights from troops who are risking their lives to protect our freedoms.”

“Protecting Lake Okeechobee is vital to ensuring that people who depend on the Lake have access to safe and reliable drinking water and that our agriculture industries around the Lake have the adequate water for their crops to feed our state and our nation. Agriculture is one of the three largest drivers to Florida’s economy and any negative impact to agriculture will affect the entire state’s economy. Many of those families have farmed for generations and a Lake regulation schedule that does not take into account their legitimate needs would harm Floridians."
July 14, 2021 Press Release
“Florida and many Cuban-Americans in our state have had a front row seat to the human tragedy and political dangers from the communist Castro dictatorship and generations of oppression. It is completely insane that so many of our Democrat colleagues are practically silent in condemning this humanitarian catastrophe and destabilizing political threat at our very doorstep. We must demand the Biden Administration support the Cuban people’s fight for freedom and clearly and unequivocally condemn communism.”
July 10, 2021 Press Release
“Our country’s small businesses faced unprecedented challenges during COVID-19 and are still recovering. Other FDA user fees have small business provisions, and this legislation would bring this fee in line with other FDA user fee programs to ensure small businesses aren’t excessively burdened.”
July 9, 2021 Press Release
“Political motivations should not be taken into consideration when determining conditions of custody, especially for non-violent individuals who have not been convicted of a crime. Yet reports have surfaced that many of the suspects arrested in connection with the January 6 protests are being held in solitary confinement or in other extreme conditions without a satisfactory explanation.”
July 2, 2021 Press Release
“Those who dismissed Republicans as conspiracy theorists for questioning China’s role in developing COVID-19 at the Wuhan Institute of Virology were completely wrong. As we now carry out investigations, we need stronger leadership from the White House and Democrats in Congress to demand transparency from China and accountability for their deadly malfeasance – we cannot simply rely on organizations like the WHO or shady government officials like Dr. Fauci.”
July 1, 2021 Press Release
“Our country is in crisis. Since President Biden has taken office, violent crime has surged, our southern border has been overwhelmed, and our country has faced unprecedented cyberattacks. I am honored to have the opportunity to serve alongside my Republican colleagues as we navigate solutions to these problems and work towards the goal of keeping American families safe for generations to come.”
