Committees and Caucuses


I currently serve on the House Committee on Appropriations. The Appropriations Committee is the body that writes the laws that direct federal funding. I am honored to have an extraordinary opportunity to advocate for South Floridians at the highest level of government advancing investments in health care, education, better infrastructure, and global peace. You can learn more about the Committee here.

Applications for FY25 Community Project Funding are now closed. We are no longer accepting programmatic or report language requests. Stay tuned for further updates on the FY 2025 application process.
