Haile Brockington, Dominicue “Pa-Pa” Andrews, and now  Jordan Coleman.  These are the names of three precious children whose lives were tragically cut short when they perished after being left behind in a hot child care van in the sweltering Florida heat.  Had the State Legislature put politics aside and acted on behalf of our children, they would still be alive today.  For the last two sessions, I have introduced a bill named for Haile, the little girl who died after being left in a van by her daycare provider in Delray Beach two years ago.  The bill requires all child care vans to be equipped with safety alarms prompting drivers to check the vehicle before locking up.  It passed unanimously in the Senate, but was blocked in the House.  The Florida Child Care Management Association lobbied successfully against its passage.  Since then, every summer another child dies.  Isn’t it time that we looked out for the interests of our children rather than the interests of lobbying groups?  I remain committed to protecting our most vulnerable, so that another child doesn’t die needlessly like Haile, “Pa-Pa,” and Jordan.
