Senator Rick Scott is visiting cities across Florida to hear from families and local leaders about making Washington work to keep families safe and ensure Florida is the best state to work, go to school, visit and raise a family. His “Keeping Our Kids Safe Tour” made stops in Ruskin, Fleming Island, DeLand, West Palm Beach, Fort Myers and North Miami Beach.
Senator Scott has been holding roundtable discussions to highlight his legislative priorities and actions to protect Florida kids and families.
In Ruskin, the Republican Senator spoke about fentanyl, AI, the border, and more topics which have come up around the state.
“Parents know what is best for their children and keeping them safe is my top priority,” Senator Rick Scott said. “I am thankful for the opportunity to travel to Ruskin and hear from parents and their community leaders about what they are most focused on when it comes to raising their families. Unfortunately, the fentanyl crisis continues to rage, AI has started to creep into our kids’ lives, the border is wide open and I hear from parents that they’re constantly worried about their children—it is time to act. That is why I have introduced extensive legislation such as my END FENTANYL Act and OPIOIDS Act to combat the fentanyl crisis, my DATA Act to hold big tech accountable as more kids start to use social media and my School Guardian Act and Luke and Alex School Safety Act to bolster school safety measures. We need to build a world that they are safe to grow up and go to school in, and I am fighting to give parents the comfort of waking up, dropping their kids off at school and feeling reassured that they will return home every single day. We can all agree we must do everything we can to keep our kids safe at school, home and online. We’ve made progress, but I won’t stop fighting until we get this all done.”
