Fighting For Clean Water & Protecting The Environment

The most important issue for our community is the devastation of our water.  This impacts everyone: businesses forced to close, people getting sick, animals killed, and our environment destroyed.  Health and safety needs to be made a top priority to prevent these discharges.  Our work in this area is not about one party or any individual; it is about defending our community by putting all people and our environment first.

Our accomplishments include:

  • Securing a commitment to authorize the EAA Southern Storage Reservoir
  • Passing hundreds of millions of dollars to combat harmful algal blooms, prevent toxic agricultural runoff and restore the Everglades
  • Fully funding expedited completion of the Herbert Hoover Dike
  • Passing legislation forcing the Army Corps to re-evaluate their discharge schedule
  • Passing legislation funding the development of technology to clean massive discharges of water
  • Serving as Vice Chairman of the Water Resources & Environment Subcommittee
