West Palm Beach, FL – Over the past 200 days, House Democrats have passed bold legislation and delivered on their agenda to lower health care costs, raise workers’ wages, and clean up government corruption. This week, Congresswoman Lois Frankel (FL-21) kicked off the August recess by holding a series of For The People meetings with constituents and local advocacy groups to discuss pressing issues facing South Floridians and how she can keep continue to fight for them in Congress.

Rep. Frankel visits the Rotary Club of West Palm Beach.

Congresswoman Frankel held roundtables with:

  • Independent Pharmacy Owners to discuss the current industry landscape and the business impact;
  • Property managers to discuss hurricane preparedness;
  • Seniors in West Palm Beach to celebrate Medicare and Medicaid’s 54th anniversary; and
  • First responders, including police officers and firefighters, to hear about their most pressing challenges.

She also met a local Girl Scout leader to discuss the learning opportunities the group provides young girls. Finally, the Congresswoman met with local chapters of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the Rotary Club of West Palm Beach.

House Democrats have made massive progress during the first 200 days in the majority, like passing bills to ensure equal pay for equal work, guarantee universal background checks for all gun sales, combat the climate crisis, lower health care costs, shore-up election security, and more. These initiatives are now awaiting action in the Senate. Congresswoman Frankel and Democrats will keep urging the Senate and Mitch McConnell to do their jobs and move forward on these urgent priorities.
