As Floridians, fishing is critical to our economy and way of life. From a day spent on the water with friends and family, to making a living from it, fishing is a mainstay in our community.

For me, keeping our fishing industry safe is keeping our community safe. That’s why I’m glad to report that the House recently passed the FISH SAFE Act! This bill extends funding for fishing safety programs around the country. Supporting programs like this will help promote a safer working environment for fishermen in our community and ensure they have the resources needed to thrive every day.
