Location:

The Port of Miami is one of our largest economic engines and I have worked with my colleagues in Congress and federal agencies to make sure that our port has the funding it needs to continue to be such a large contributor to our economy.

* I led the South Florida Delegation in meetings with the Army Corps of Engineers, Office of Management and Budget, and other federal agencies to secure funding for the dredging of the Port of Miami.

* I have championed $2.3 million for security funding at the Port of Miami.

Stimulating Business at the Port of Miami

The Port of Miami is one of our largest economic engines and I have worked with my colleagues in Congress and federal agencies to make sure that our port has the funding it needs to continue to be such a large contributor to our economy.

The dredging of the Port of Miami allows for larger boats with more cargo to access the port, which will bring more business to South Florida.
I championed an increase of $80 million to continue to dredge the port and implement Phase III of the Miami River dredging plan and increase the business at the port.

SECURITY

The safety and security of every South Florida family is one of my top priorities. I have worked diligently in Congress to ensure that our federal government has all the tools necessary at its disposal in order to keep us safe.

# I voted for the Integrated Deepwater Program Reform Act. This act would modernize our Coast Guard fleet, a vital part of our security apparatus in South Florida.

# In conjunction with our South Florida Congressional Delegation, I have secured federal funds for better screening and security at Miami International Airport.
