Rep. Trujillo confirmed as Permanent Representative to OAS


State Rep. Carlos Trujillo (R) has finally been confirmed by the U.S. Senate to be the U.S. Permanent Representative to the Organization of American States (OAS).

The White House appointed Trujilo to the post back in October 2017, but his confirmation needed to wait until the 2018 legislative session in Florida concluded on March 9, and for Gov. Rick Scott to sign the state budget.

Trujillo will have to pack his and his families bags and move to Washington, D.C.
