Greater Miami Chamber to honor ‘Legislative Champion’ Ana Maria Rodriguez

She is the first Senator to win the award.

The Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce has named Sen. Ana Maria Rodriguez as its “2023 Legislative Champion Award” recipient for her leadership of Miami-Dade County state lawmakers and support of affordable housing legislation.

She’ll receive the award Tuesday at the welcome reception for a three-day Tallahassee Fly-in the Chamber is holding to advocate for transportation, workforce housing, workforce development and resiliency legislation, among other measures.

Rodriguez, a Republican, is the first Senator to win the award. All three prior honorees received the award for their efforts in the House.

“Honestly, it’s a tremendous honor to be recognized by my community’s oldest and largest chamber of commerce,” she told Florida Politics.

“I grew up professionally being involved with the Chamber as a Leadership Miami graduate, so in many ways it’s a homecoming. I’m thankful and humbled.”
