As a fifth-generation Floridian, Bill's roots run deep in Florida. Bill is a U.S. Army veteran and was a crew member on the 24th flight NASA Space Shuttle Columbia.
Bill passed a law that continues to protect Florida's beaches and environment, our tourism-driven economy and our military testing and training range in the Eastern Gulf by keeping oil rigs off Florida's coasts.
Now he is helping Florida's communities manage rising sea levels caused by climate change.
And Bill is working to create jobs for the future especially in the aerospace, high tech and renewable energy industries.
