Preserving and protecting our environment is one of my priorities in Congress. I have fought to place a greater emphasis on environmental justice, ensuring that historically disadvantaged communities do not suffer disproportionately from poor energy and environmental decisions. I oppose offshore drilling. Florida's beaches, coastline, and environment should not be destroyed in an effort that would only save taxpayers pennies at the gas pump. Instead, I support raising fuel-efficiency standards and investing in research and development for the next generation of alternative and renewable energy. As a fifth generation Floridian and great grandson of a Creek Indian, my passion for the Everglades extends back to my birth. I have championed efforts to restore the Everglades. Democrats in Congress have shown true leadership on Everglades restoration efforts and passed the 1st WRDA in 7 years with critical Everglades and South Florida funding.
