While this bill was intended to stimulate tourism and find unique ways to explore economic development, I have had a number of conversations with my constituents and city leaders who have made it very clear that this is not an avenue they are interested in pursuing. I have always said that I am a representative of my community and my community has spoken loud and clear. #

Rubio and Ros-Lehtinen’s ‘hopelessly complicated’ abortion bill

Florida GOP lawmakers recently introduced federal legislation requiring each state to uphold other states' parental notification before abortion laws in both chambers of Congress. The Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act (aka CIANA) was introduced by Sen. Marco Rubio and Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen in an effort to correct a “loophole” in abortion laws that allows a minor to cross state lines in order obtain an abortion without notifying her parents. Critics of the bill claim that it is hopelessly complicated,” as well as unnecessary.
