Statement from Senate Majority Leader Debbie Mayfield on Special Session

Tallahassee —

Florida Senate Majority (Republican) Leader Debbie Mayfield (R-Melbourne) today released the following statement in response to Governor DeSantis’ call for a special session to safeguard Floridians from overreach by the federal government.

“I have heard from many constituents who are concerned that their abilities to provide for their families and make health care decisions for themselves are being threatened by the Biden Administration’s sweeping COVID-19 mandates. I look forward to working alongside President Wilton Simpson and Governor Ron DeSantis to preserve our individual rights and safeguard Floridians from the federal government’s overreach.”
