Florida is blessed with a unique and beautiful environment, from America’s Everglades to endless miles of pristine beaches. Our economy and quality of life depend on keeping Florida clean – and that’s not worth sacrificing for the short-term gain of corporate polluters.
That’s why I’m fighting to pass a statewide ban on fracking and have fought to protect our sensitive ecosystems. I was named Champion of the Everglades by Audubon Florida in 2015 because of my record on fighting for our environment. In Congress, I’ll fight to ban fracking on all our public lands and finish the work President Obama has started to reduce our reliance on carbon fuels.
