This morning, in an interview with The Floridan, Florida Senator Rick Scott (R) discussed some of the accomplishments of the Homeland Security committee he is a member of.

As well, Senator Scott commented on some moves he’s making for the future.

Speaking on Homeland Security measures, Scott noted that “constantly getting information about what is going on on the border” has been an important contribution considering that curbing illegal immigration has been a top priority for the Trump administration.

Moving away from the border, the Florida Senator mentioned that he’s dedicated the end of the year to accommodate “some changes in how FEMA operates so that we don’t waste money.” This is an issue that he’s been consistent on tackling since winning his seat in the Senate in the 2018 midterm election.

In addition, he announced that his No Budget, No Pay bill “passed through the committee as an amendment to a bill.” The bill has gained support from legislators and constituents alike because it guarantees that the United States Congress wouldn’t receive a salary unless they passed a budget.
