Fighting for Florida

Today, I joined the Bay County Chamber of Commerce for their monthly breakfast. It was an honor to visit and speak with those who have a vested interest in promoting a pro-growth environment for the Bay County area.
 
As I mentioned in my remarks, we must work together with our business leaders to strengthen our economy, grow good-paying jobs, and help Florida workers and families achieve the American dream.
 
Because of job-killing regulations and bureaucrats in Washington, Florida workers are under attack. But I am fighting back. 
 
I continue to challenge the federal government on regulatory issues such as its flawed basis for imposing fishing regulations that affect everyone on the Gulf. I am also pushing for a resolution to the Army Corps of Engineers’ mismanagement of water that had directly harmed the Apalachicola Bay, which serves as an economic driver and an important ecosystem to this region.  
 
I appreciate the Bay County Chamber of Commerce for hosting me today. One of the best ways I can represent and serve Florida in the U.S. Senate is by hearing directly from our community leaders, job creators, and other hardworking Floridians. They are the backbone of our state’s economy and I will continue to push for policies that help grow more good-paying jobs right here in Florida.
