    … Given the crucial role mental health plays in our lives, now more than ever we need to act to make mental health research and treatment a priority in our society – and government can play an important role.

    A Republican lawmaker told Environmental Protection Agency administrator Scott Pruitt to resign Tuesday after controversial reports broke calling his ethics into question, becoming the first GOP lawmaker to do so. "Major policy differences aside, @EPAScottPruitt's corruption scandals are an embarrassment to the Administration, and his conduct is grossly disrespectful to American taxpayers.

    Don’t Forget to File For Hurricane Tax Relief Keys Weekly By: Rep. Carlos Curbelo March 29, 2018 When some in the Lower and Middle Keys lost everything to Hurricane Irma’s 130 miles-per-hour winds and 10-foot storm surge, I knew perhaps the greatest devastation would be the financial strain on individuals, families, and small entrepreneurs whose property or livelihoods had taken a direct hit. When I first joined the tax-writing Ways and Means Committee last year, I wanted ... Read more

    The good: Potential developers told the Navy that the best way forward is to bulldoze the empty 166 housing units on Sigsbee Park and replace them with as many as 322 sparkling new units. The bad: The process to either repair the existing units or begin that demolition process thus far has been bogged down by bureaucratic red tape. The ugly: One scenario projects that any proposed new housing construction won’t be completed until the fall of 2022 at the earliest. Back to the good again: U.S. Rep... Read more

    Posted in In The News on December 8, 2017 | Preview rr

    When I worked in the private sector, as a School Board Member, and now as a Member of Congress, I've always tried to establish a culture of respect and decency in the workplace. The revelations of the #MeToo movement the last few months have given the unacceptable behavior taking place in many of America's workplaces attention it has long-needed. Sadly, harassers hide in positions of power across many fields – they're in our schools and universities, in small businesses and private corporations,... Read more

  • Wall Street Journal: No Republicans Need Apply
    Posted in In The News on November 16, 2017 | Preview rr

    Carlos Curbelo sure seems to qualify as Hispanic. He’s the son of a Cuban father and mother who fled the Castro regime. He speaks Spanish. And as the Congressman for Florida’s 26th district—which includes the Florida Keys and parts of Miami-Dade County—it would seem only natural to join the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, as Mr. Curbelo has been asking to do since January. Only one problem: Mr. Curbelo is a Republican. And though there was a day when the Congressional Hispanic Caucus had GOP memb... Read more

    Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) was elected to serve Florida's 26th District in 2014 and easily won re-election in 2016. The son of Cuban exiles, Curbelo was born and raised in Miami. Curbelo, not surprisingly, petitioned for acceptance into the Congressional Hispanic Caucus — but he hit an unsuspected roadblock: The CHC spokesperson explained the move: After due consideration, the CHC determined not to accept Rep.
