Floridians,

Today, I applauded the passage of Senate Bill 72. The legislation, which now heads to Governor Ron DeSantis for signature, provides liability protections related to COVID-19 for Florida businesses and health care providers.

This is a huge win for Florida and a major step to get Florida’s economy back on its feet and ensure our state fully recovers from this pandemic. As my top priority this legislative session, I was proud to travel the state fighting for these critical protections. No doubt, this is the single most important piece of legislation that unifies families in our state and a huge milestone for businesses and health care workers who no longer have to live in fear of COVID-19 litigation. By passing this legislation, Tallahassee has shown tremendous leadership and given businesses the confidence they have needed to keep their doors open and serve their communities.

This week, I also issued a letter to Former President, current Florida resident and businessman, Donald Trump encouraging him to begin his new digital platform in Florida. Between Florida’s colleges and universities, our infrastructure, private sector partners and business development entities, Florida has what it takes for this new venture to succeed in the Sunshine State.

Lastly, I was also proud to honor the Greek heritage of Floridians, like myself, by recognizing Greece’s 200th Independence Day on March 25, 2021. Florida has deep ties to the Greek community including, Tarpon Springs, a city in Pinellas County with the highest percentage of Greek Americans of any city in the United States. It is important acknowledge the significant role that Greece played on the global stage and their strong relationship with the United States.

I hope you have a great weekend!


Sincerely,

Jimmy
