Our bills will take important steps to empower the healthcare workforce to improve addiction treatment and prevention, expand research into the opioid epidemic, stem the flow of illegal opioids flowing into our country and more.
It is unacceptable that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers would discharge massive amounts of water into our community without knowing whether the water was safe. That's why I'm calling on them to immediately cease the discharges until they can prove that the water is safe!
The Army Corps’ discharges from Lake Okeechobee — which started again last week — are unacceptable. Our community cannot afford more devastation. We cannot afford a status quo that prioritizes everyone else’s interests over ours.
This week we were able to make big progress on a number of top priorities, including our water issues, efforts to stop Brightline, help for veterans and national defense. Read about some of what we got done that you might not have heard about on the news.
I have good news: Congress has heard our pleas, and water infrastructure leaders have now committed to authorizing the EAA southern storage reservoir this year once the Army Corps completes their review. We also secured several big wins for our local water in the Water Resources and Development Act.
