Bill of the Week!
HB 915
Commercial Motor Vehicle Registration

HB 915 hits close to home for me. As someone who has owned and operated a trucking business, I believe this bill is a great step to help this industry. This bill is designed to help ease regulations on our Florida Truckers.
Currently, truckers are required to replace their license plates every year under the International Registration Plan.
HB 915 would extend this requirement to three years with the registration fee of $28 dollars being paid annually. Passage of HB915 allows the trucker to keep the physical license plate in place for three years. All fees from registration renewals will be deposited to the Highway Safety Operating Trust Fund.
I am excited to see HB 915 going to the House Floor!

Fighting for Conservative Values


I am honored to be recognized by CPAC and accept their award for being a Representative of Conservative Excellence in the State of Florida! This would not have been possible without the support from my family and all of you throughout District 80.

This Week’s Words Of Wisdom

The Song Of The Week

This week’s Song of the Week is
“Roll On” by Alabama!

I am so proud of the bills I have introduced to the house this Session. Particularly, HB 915 will have truckers stopping less and saying “roll on 18-wheeler roll on.”
