“As a newly elected House Representative, I am pleased to be assigned to these diverse committees, as I will be able to influence legislation in the important areas of insurance, banking, education, and healthcare,” Franklin said. “I am excited to sit on the Health Care Regulation Subcommittee, which will consider a wide variety of issues responding to the changing demands of the state’s public health programs, long-term care facilities, acute-care hospitals, pharmacies and other health-care services.”
Franklin said he looks forward to addressing complex challenges, working with the members of the committees he has been assigned, and being a voice for the residents of Gadsden and Leon counties.
