Rubio Releases Report on 2021 Accomplishments

Jan 27, 2022 | Comunicados de Prensa

Miami, FL U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) released a report detailing his legislative accomplishments in 2021 and the landmark laws he wrote over the past five years. Six Rubio bills became law in 2021, including the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act, which represents one of the most significant changes in America’s trade relationship with China in decades. The Center for Effective Lawmaking (CEL) ranked Rubio as the most effective Republican Senator and a non-partisan analysis produced by GovTrack ranked Rubio as the second top leader compared to all senators in 2020 and 2019.
“One of my highest priorities is making sure my staff and I are available to help Floridians with whatever federal assistance they may need,” Rubio said. “Overall, my federal casework team helped 21,000 Floridians in 2021. They helped seniors work through bureaucracy, ensuring they received the Social Security and Medicare benefits they paid into for decades. They helped veterans secure the benefits they earned. They helped the unemployed and homeless. They continue to help Floridians impacted by hurricanes. The list goes on because, ultimately, that is what public service is all about—helping constituents.”

Last month, Rubio released a short video recapping his legislative efforts in 2021 on behalf of Florida and the nation. 
Key 2021 highlights from the report:

Senator Rubio’s award-winning federal casework team helped 21,000 Floridians navigate the agency process for veterans, immigrants, servicemembers, the unemployed, passport holders, small businesses, and the homeless. Overall, the team handled more than 60,000 cases over the past five years.
New Laws. Senator Rubio authored dozens of laws over the past five years, including the expansion of the child tax credit, the VA Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act, the Central Everglades Planning Project (CEPP), numerous bills on Venezuela and China, and, of course, the Paycheck Protection Program.
