Josie Tomkow serves Florida as State Representative
HB-1105, Child Welfare – Promotes child safety and creates a faster path to permanency with loving families for children in our foster care system.
HB 787, Drivers Licenses – Creates a “D” designation for drivers with development disabilities. This legislation was brought to Representative Tomkow’s attention by a constituent with Autism who was concerned about communication with law enforcement & other first responders.
HB 7053, Direct Care Workers – Addresses the high turnover rate for direct care workers, which negatively affects quality of care for older and disabled patients, by increasing opportunities for upward mobility and consistent employment for these workers. Florida ranks first in the nation in the percentage of residents age 65 and older so it’s imperative to address these issues and ensure these vulnerable populations have access to high quality care.
Representative Tomkow also worked diligently and was able to secure funding in the state budget (pending Governor approval) for the following programs:
VFW Educational Youth Scholarship & Teacher Recognition Special Olympics Florida Unified Champions Schools 2022 Special Olympics USA Games YMCA Youth in Government One More Child Single Moms Program
