On Wednesday, I joined Fox & Friends First to discuss the impacts of the FDA ripping away authorization for use of certain monoclonal drugs. This is heartless. We need answers to why they’re stonewalling life-saving options for Floridians. I'll fight till I get them.

On Monday, I issued a consumer alert warning Floridians to beware of a scam called “Smishing.” Smishing is a form of “phishing” using SMS or text messages instead of email messages to lure in consumers to click on fraudulent links. With tax season upon us, consumers need to be especially vigilant of fraudulent text messages that appear to be from the IRS or from their bank. If you receive a text message that you believe may be fraudulent, verify it by contacting the company using a website or phone number that you know is real. It is critical for Floridians to stay on-guard, and if you are suspicious of fraud, report it immediately at FraudFreeFlorida.com.

Lastly, with many parts of Florida expected to see near-freezing temperatures this weekend, I highlighted winter fire safety tips to help ensure Florida families stay warm and safe as cold air sets in. It is important to remember that safety always comes first when heating your home with space heaters, wood-burning stoves and fireplaces. Incorporating just a few heating safety tips can help prevent accidents and make sure your home and family are safe this winter.

Have a great weekend.
