  • SM 540: Highlights the threat from Chinese military bases and advisors in Cuba.

  • HB 917: Strengthens vocational and technical training and provides additional educational opportunities for young people in high demand fields.

“This event was more than a celebration, it was an opportunity to elevate the voices of young leaders and stakeholders and drive a meaningful conversation on Florida’s future,” said Tony Figueroa, President of Miami Young Republicans. “We’re thrilled that so many were in attendance to listen and, in a more exciting way, showcasing a desire to get further involved in the legislative process and bring forth new, bold ideas to keep our state free and prosperous.”

“The passage of these important pieces of legislation is a testament to the leadership and impact of Miami Young Republicans legislators and advocates at all levels of government. Our members are leading the charge in Tallahassee, Washington, and South Florida, addressing major issues with innovative solutions that should be replicated nationwide,” said Armando Ibarra, Chairman of the Miami Young Republicans.
