We’ve been checking on the people who represent you and the rest of SWFL in Congress. We wanted to know if they and their staff members are safe, and how they might be affected by what’s happening at the capitol.

We know it was already a busy day in the Capitol before all this happened, and we will keep you posted on when and if we hear back from local representatives.
