“Protecting the environment is vital to protect the health of all Americans, particularly our children. I will continue to fight for cleaner air, cleaner water, and preservation of our natural resources, understanding that what we do today has an impact on future generations of Americans. “
Leadership: As a Representative from the state of Florida, Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz has been outspoken about the dangers of offshore oil drilling and the need to invest in alternative energy solutions. She has highlighted the damage BP’s oil spill did to coral reefs, mangrove forests and sea grasses, and pointed out that these habitats are critical for healthy commercial and recreational fisheries in the Gulf. In response, Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz has cosponsored a number of bills aimed at preventing future spills, as well as legislation that preserves and restores coral reefs. She has also led efforts to protect another of Florida’s important natural resources, the Everglades. Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz is a fearless advocate for the citizens of the 23rd District and the progressive causes that matter to so many of them. She is also a true champion for our oceans and we are proud to endorse her.
