The Horror of Chemical Weapons

April 19, 2017 - 12:00pm

Syrian President Bashar al Assad is being read out of the human race, and the Trump administration seems to have done a 180-degree turn on the necessity for “regime change” in Syria because Assad used horrible, horrible! weapons against civilians, including helpless little babies.

I've Asked the Legislature to Budget $200 Million to Fix the Herbert Hoover Dike

April 17, 2017 - 5:15pm

It’s important to me that as the Legislature has progressed on President Negron’s priority Lake Okeechobee bill, I give an update on how I believe we should be funding our environment and conversations I have been having with the Trump Administration.

Make Insurance Affordable Again

April 14, 2017 - 8:00am

Republicans may take another stab at getting rid of Obamacare, better called the “Unaffordable Care Act.” But most Americans will hold their applause until they find out whether this next attempt will improve their situation, or make insurance even more unaffordable and further restrict their ability to even have a say in their choice of doctors and treatment options.

Sports by the Numbers: Big Business in Florida

April 11, 2017 - 6:30pm

Sports is big business in Florida, bringing in over $2 billion in revenue each year. Not surprisingly, our professional sports teams generate the most revenue in sports each year because they benefit not just from ticket sales, but revenue sharing from television.

Foster Care Program for Teen Drivers Headed to Governor's Desk

April 7, 2017 - 12:30pm

As young people transition to adulthood, earning their driver’s license provides a certain level of independence and economic mobility -- a vehicle, if you will, to go places in life.
Whether heading to school or work, the doctor’s office or the grocery store, having the ability to drive is a necessity most Floridians take for granted. 

Save Jobs While Providing Less Harmful Vapor Products

April 6, 2017 - 5:15pm

The Florida State Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (FSHCC) is the only statewide economic development organization dedicated to serving the needs of the Hispanic business community. We have 38 chapters in Florida and work with more than 80,000 minority-owned businesses, many of whom are in the grocery and convenience store industry.

Business Rent Tax Stifles Florida’s Economic Future

April 6, 2017 - 1:15pm

The business rent tax is the only state-sanctioned sales tax on commercial leases in the entire country and Florida is the not-so-proud holder of that title. Not even tax-happy havens like California and New York impose this state tax on its businesses. Due to this burdensome tax, Florida businesses shell out more than $1.7 billion dollars every year to the state. As a result, our state economy dramatically suffers in the form of suppressed job growth and economic activity.

Megabrew Legislation Threatens Craft Brewers

April 3, 2017 - 6:15pm

A bill permitting big brewers to give away branded glassware to bars and restaurants is sailing through the Legislature.  Currently, retailers must buy such glassware at cost.  The proposed legislation, HB 853 (Rep. Tom Goodson, R-Rockledge) and SB 1040 (Sen. Frank Artiles, R-Miami) could shut Florida’s craft brewers out of your favorite pub.

Time to Hold the CFPB Accountable

April 3, 2017 - 1:00pm

Since I was first elected to Congress, I have fought to hold government agencies and Washington bureaucrats more accountable to Floridians and all Americans. Unfortunately, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) continues to operate in a manner unaccountable to Congress, the president and American taxpayers.
