South Florida Deserves New Solutions
Our nation has long been the land of opportunity where those who work hard and play by the rules are able to find success. Generation after generation has been better off than the last.
Families across South Florida are seeing fewer opportunities to do better for themselves. Many young people graduate from college and struggle to find good jobs. Many are getting by but not getting ahead. Washington politicians have failed at proposing and implementing polices that would lead to an economy that gives everyone a fair shot.
Now, more than ever, South Florida needs new and effective leadership – a new generation of leadership that will work to pass the government reforms needed to build a healthy economy and result in greater freedom and opportunity.
That is why I am honored to represent the people of South Florida in the U.S. House of Representatives for Florida’s 26th District. Thank you for your support and trust.

Carlos Curbelo Brings Out Water Infrastructure Finance Bill
On Friday, U.S. Rep. Carlos Curbelo, R-Fla., introduced the “Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act (WIFIA) Improvement Act” which ensures bonds can be included in backing federal water projects. “WIFIA is an innovative pilot program that was created in the Water Resources Reform and Development Act of 2014,” Curbelo said on Friday when he unveiled the bill. “Similar to other successful transportation programs that connect different funding sources, WIFIA would leverage a small amount of federal funds to enable large, job-creating, water infrastructure projects. While WIFIA can finance up to 49 percent of eligible projects, a current limitation prevents these loans from being combined with tax-exempt bonds, resulting in the program’s operation being severely impaired. This prohibition undermines WIFIA as a tool to advance water infrastructure projects. By repealing the limitation on tax-exempt bonds, critical improvements to our nation’s drinking water and wastewater systems can be made…..
