Southwest Florida’s waterways serve as the lifeblood of our community and our local economy. As your representative, you have my commitment that I will preserve and protect these precious waterways for generations to follow. I am in support of environmental research and projects that lead to the preservation of our waters. On the other hand, we cannot support legislation that will burden taxpayers and vital industries that create millions of good-paying jobs. Radical policies should not drive environmental policy. The solution should be simple; continue to be a responsible steward of the environment and support American energy jobs.
The Central Everglades Restoration Plan is an excellent example of a commonsense, bipartisan solution that will maintain our water and conserve a vital part of our environment.
