From a press release
WASHINGTON, DC - This morning, Congressman Joe Garcia met with President Obama to discuss critical issues affecting his South Florida District. During the in-flight meeting, Congressman Garcia discussed some of his top-priority issues including the crisis in Venezuela, immigration reform, the implementation of the Affordable Care Act and skyrocketing flood insurance rates – a topic that has been gaining steam in Congress.
Earlier this week, the House of Representatives passed a bill which would address exorbitant rate increases for tens of thousands of homeowners and renters in the district. Congressman Garcia has been at the forefront of flood insurance reform and a staunch advocate for finding bipartisan solutions.
