On Wednesday, Gus met with Miss America (1999) and tireless advocate for diabetes research and awareness, Nicole Johnson Baker.
The two met between votes in Gus's Capitol Hill office in Washington, D.C. and discussed efforts in Congress to increase diabetes research and education.
Today the Washington Times published an op-ed authored by Gus calling on the U.N. Security Council to make India a permanent member. Last year, Bilirakis introduced H.Res. 638 that urges the U.N. to take the necessary actions to establish India as a permanent member.
Local community college officials from Pasco, Pinellas and Hillsborough counties were in Washington on Tuesday to discuss this year's legislative priorities with Gus.
