The Everglades is a natural treasure and is one of the true ecological wonders of the world, but its existence is in jeopardy due to decades of abuse. Recognizing this problem, I, along with Representative Alcee L. Hastings founded the Everglades Caucus in the House of Representatives.
The Caucus' mission is to promote legislation which will provide long-term funding for Everglades related projects which will ensure preservation of this unique ecosystem. By organizing a group of interested Members to offer a single voice in support of these goals, the Caucus is instrumental in assuring vital Everglades funding and restoration. It is our responsibility to ensure that this treasure is preserved for our children and grandchildren to enjoy.
