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 have voted in favor of legislation to modernize our Coast Guard fleet and technological capabilities. Our community is home to three major Coast Guard stations: Coast Guard Sector Miami, Coast Guard Air Station Miami, and Coast Guard Sector Key West.
I was a leading voice calling for greater transparency into the Dubai World Ports deal.
I have also secured funds for better screening and security at Miami International Airport, for both personal travel and cargo shipments.
