I am a strong supporter of our National Park System. Our area is home to three National Parks: the Everglades, Biscayne National Park, and the Dry Tortugas.

I am proud to represent the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. Our sanctuary is home to countless species of marine life, coral reef, and other sensitive habitats. I have participated in 2 dives to NOAA's Aquarius Underwater Laboratory for a firsthand look at our sanctuary, and the scientific work being conducted by federal and university researchers.

I am a founding member and co-Chair of the National Marine Sanctuary Caucus, a Congressional organization dedicated to promoting the importance of marine sanctuaries. I voted for the Coral Reef Conservation Act. This bill creates a dedicated federal grant program to protect our coral reefs.

I am opposed to offshore oil drilling. As we have seen with the epic environmental disaster following the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig, offshore drilling poses a threat to our economy and our environment.
