Americans for Prosperity Action-Florida Continues Rolling Out State Legislative Endorsements

Press Release

Endorses Sen. Jim Boyd and Sen. Jennifer Bradley

Americans for Prosperity Action-Florida (AFP Action-FL) continues its support for Florida legislative candidates with endorsements of State Sen. Jim Boyd (SD-20) and State Sen. Jennifer Bradley (SD-06).

Sen. Boyd and Bradley earned AFP Action’s endorsements based on their support for responsible government regulations and reform efforts that break down regulatory barriers that deny opportunities and limit individual success.

“Sen. Boyd and Bradley understand that government regulations, no matter how well-intentioned, can erect roadblocks to businesses, workers, and families seeking opportunities and pursuing their dreams,” said AFP Action Senior Advisor Skylar Zander. “Re-elected to the State Senate, they will continue to seek reform opportunities to clear the roadblocks and allow people greater freedom to improve their lives and wellbeing.”

BACKGROUND

State Sen. Jim Boyd (SD-20)

Sen. Jim Boyd supports legislation that will get the government out of the way of parents by empowering them to choose education solutions that are best for their children, including charter schools. He also supported telehealth reform to make it easier for Floridians to see a doctor and receive care during a crisis such as COVID or for people who are less mobile and have difficulty leaving their homes for medical care. Sen. Boyd also voted for legislation to save the state pension program by phasing out the old system and allowing new state employees to receive 401(k)-style benefits. In 2020, the state pension system had $36 billion in unfunded liabilities.

State Sen. Jennifer Bradley (SD-06)

Sen. Jennifer Bradley championed legislation that allows restaurants and other food service businesses to sell and deliver alcoholic beverages. This legislation was important to businesses that were struggling to survive during the pandemic and recovery. Upon signing the legislation, Gov. DeSantis thanked Sen. Bradley for her leadership and for being “ready and willing to create common-sense reforms that got government out of the way and increased opportunity for Florida businesses.” Sen. Bradley is also the sponsor of legislation to simplify the regulatory process around mixed-use development and affordable housing.
