This week, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., who sits on the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee, brought back a proposal taking aim at ZTE, a telecommunications company run by the Chinese government.
U.S. Rep. Dan Webster, R-Fla., has brought back his proposal for the U.S. Commerce Department to increase regulation on the international shark trade.
Towards the end of last month, Webster brought back his “Sustainable Shark and Fisheries Trade Act” proposal which is being backed by cosponsors from both sides of the aisle including fellow Florida Republican U.S. Reps. Gus Bilirakis, Matt Gaetz and Ted Yoho.
From his perch as the chairman of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee on Western Hemisphere, Transnational Crime, Civilian Security, Democracy, Human Rights, and Global Women’s Issues, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., continues to praise the Trump administration for its opposition to the Maduro regime in Venezuela.
Rubio announced on Monday that Chargé d’affaires of the Embassy of Venezuela to the United States Carlos Vecchio will be his official guest when President Donald Trump gives the State of the Union address on Tuesday night.
