Quotes:

“Restoring the Apalachicola River and Bay system isn’t a partisan issue. It’s time for Congress to act — Republicans and Democrats need to work together to fix this ongoing problem, before it’s too late.”

“We need a Congress in general that’s more willing to consider that someone else’s ideas might be equally as valid. We need to figure out a way to come down more in the middle, to get things done again.”

Leadership: As the victor over Ocean Enemy #1, Congresswoman Graham has replaced a loud and aggressive anti-environmental voice with a reasoned and balanced talent for working with her colleagues on both sides of the aisle. In her new role she continues to fight for strong ocean and environmental policies and to oppose the steady stream of policy proposals that would gut our environmental laws or put the Gulf fisheries on the wrong track.
