Rep. Porter Visits Advent Christian Village – On Thursday, May 3, Representative Elizabeth Porter (R-Lake City) spoke to the residents of Advent Christian Village, a LeadingAge Florida member, in Dowling Park. Rep. Porter gave an informative post session report. The Representative not only covered the major issues facing the Florida Legislators, she also took time to answer all questions the residents had. The turn-out was excellent and the residents really enjoyed the information and visit. Representative Porter’s staff, Koby Adams and Rob Summerall, also attended the event.

Tom Randle, Vice President of Public Policy and Government Affairs, also spoke and gave the audience a brief overview of LeadingAge Florida’s two legislative priority bills, CS/HB 249 Public Lodging and CS/HB 787 Nursing Home Options. Both bills passed the Legislature and were approved by the Governor. Randle thanked the Representative for her vote and support of the two bills. He also gave the residents an overview of the LeadingAge Florida Congressional visits and a few thoughts on the happenings around Washington D.C.
